Set of three twisted aluminum fragments from a German V-2 "flying bomb" used late in the war essentially as a terror weapon against London or another major British city, each fragment about 3" x 3" and excavated from a site where the bomb had crashed, either due to engine failure or having been shot down by RAF fighters. All are tagged indicating the location of the relic's recovery. The relics emante from the inner fuel tank of a rocket launched on Jan. 20, 1945 at 10:06 AM by Battery 1/836 or Battery 3/836 in Holland. It crashed into a field in Hertfordshire at 3,000 MPH leaving a 36' crater. In "dug" condition, and very good. From the personal collection of World War II and Civil War historian Michael Miner. Miner's thirty-year collection was built through an extensive system of contacts he developed with artifact hunters and diggers in Europe and the Far East, and he maintained careful records of the items he amassed.
