    The last two pictures show a tail arming vane from a US aerial bomb ... a very very nice find and looks like its in reasonable condition. If you scroll down to the bottom of this page : BombFuzeCollectorsNet.com - ARCHAELOGY you will see a similar arming vane also recovered from a site in Germany.
