Original U.S. WWII Corps of Engineers High Explosive TNT 1/2 Pound Block - INERT
Original Item: Only One Available. These 1/2 lb TNT bricks were used by various Army, Navy, and Marine engineers and demolitions units. FM 5-31, Boobytraps and Landmines, explains the use of the half-pound TNT block with several fuses, including how to arm and disarm them. The TNT block could be used with the delay fuse, release fuse, or pressure fuse.
This 1/2 TNT block is completely empty and totally Inert. This example is in complete compliance per the BATF regulations. Not Available For Export.
This thick cardboard block is complete with both end caps present. This example appears to have never been used or rigged at some point to be used. The right end cap is cut almost completely off from the body, which was done when the explosive contents were removed.
All markings are still 100 percent visible and able to be ready easily:
½ POUND NET
CORPS OF ENGINEERS, U.S.A.
The back side of the tube is as follows:
FOR FRONT LINE DEMOLITION ONLY.
NOT TO BE USED FOR GENERAL BLASTING.
DO NOT USE UNDERGROUND OR IN ENCLOSED
SPACES BECAUSE OF POISONOUS FUMES.
This example is in lovely condition with minor staining to the outside paper and rust on the end caps. Due to the nature of these items, very few examples survive to this day. Most, if not used, were intentionally destroyed for obvious reasons! This is an excellent opportunity to obtain a scarce piece of U.S. Military Ordnance.
