    I almost passed on this Mills bomb today as I already have a nice No5 but when I realized that all of the fittings are aluminum (base plug, filler plug and center tube) I knew that I should grab it. It also has a nice variant safety lever that I haven't seen before. There are even some very small traces of the original painted markings.

    According to the responses that I have been receiving from English collectors it is indeed a scarce example. Well worth the price I paid.... thankfully considering who's booth it was in.... it pays to know what you are looking at.
