Made of aluminum, this UN-FIRED Signal Flare is in EXCELLENT condition considering its age. Made in the late 1940’s/50’s, it retains approx 95% original paint and finish, with NO damage! Some slight wear and marks, but nothing that detracts. The previous owner removed the post-war markings and added an almost identical WARTIME stamp and eagle. An VERY NICE late-war example, it would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
