    I agree, its an upside-down Meteor nose cone too. The fairing behind the drivers head is mounted onto the nose leg door.

    This seller is very lucky to find so many objects covering so many subjects with "faded old" museum labels to give provenance to the item which is always rather exciting too! no other seller on ebay can offer such "unique" items.

    Shocked! Next you'll be telling me that the 1943 stamp
    "RAF Code,Ref No 29P/9 1943. Still intact after 70 + years."
    on the matching tin of marmalade from the same seller is fake as well.

    If these have been listed ironically it is going over my head.

    A nice copy, cast from an original. Not smooth enough, not crisp enough. Some countersinking left out and the screw is a new addition.

    The description says 100% original, the finish just didn't look right, that porous finish didn't look like the finish on a dug one I had

    Agreed, The finish doesn't look good enough and the pedal doesn't look to have any real age or wear to it that you'd expect if it had been on the aircraft.

    LMB's were anti magnetic therefore of alloy construction, also question how "old" writing can be on top of 70 years worth of pitting?

I've seen the same seller trying to sell some "griffon exhaust stubs" which were in the same auction and actually were bodged replica stubs welded to original base plates. Messy - buyers beware...
