    Found this ordnance in a forgotten box of junk and discovered it appeared to be live. The local bomb squad was nice enough to come retrieve it.

    It had the markings: 37-85 PDPs 184 9.17 (L65617 on the screw-in tip) Also had the US flaming bomb insignia.

    It was about 7 inches long. Looked to be about 34 mm.

    Any help?:

    Thanks for the info. I'm glad it never went off. The truck is actually a 1966, but good eyes guys!
