Default Very Rounds, reproduction, set of 12

I had enough material (and patience) to make a spare set of 12 1" Very rounds. These are paper wrapped, plastic and cast resin moulded from an original. Markings are correct. Set of 12 (4 red, 4 white and 4 green) suitable to fill the bin in a tank/armoured car or Bren carrier. A set of originals would be almost impossible to find and live would probably not be a good idea for display. Blond set for sale, $150 plus shipping. Trades, lowballs welcome.

Bruce,

Would this round with those marking have made it into early post war stocks and be credible to see in a post war vehicle?

I can't say for certain but they were throwing WW2 era Mills and 3" mortar bombs well into the late 1960's so I expect so. What I have noticed is the late war (American sourced?) rounds tended to be overall aluminum instead of paper with brass.

Yes, wartime dated Very Cartridges were issued well past 1945.
