According to independent weapons experts consulted by the organization who assessed photographs of a bomb fin
taken by a journalist at the site, a US-made precision-guided Paveway-series aerial bomb was used in the attack.
It's remarkable to handle a German incendiary bomb fin
which was found in the ruins of Coventry Cathedral, together with parts of old Coventry tramway retrieved from the devastation; following World War Two trams did not run again in Coventry.
Lot 408 - an original oil painting of Coventry Cathedral in flames, two German incendiary bomb fins
, a section of broken Coventry tramway rail and three 19th century parchment scrolls taken from a solicitor's office after it burnt down - sold to a Coventry buyer for PS310.
