That would explain why I thought it might be a BBXI/II, the Talos motor was the first stage iirc.It took both pics--RIM-8 TALOS
Pretty sure it's a B with that smooth nose--the D had a couple of bumps farther back-----
Your right, I missed that, those bumps are some kind of fairing or antenna housing I think. At this point its probably safe to say its a RIM-8B.
That means one letter, the first letter, not blurting out the name of what you think it is.I'll post two picks. If you know what it is, post only the first letter and whether it took one or two pics to figure it out. I suspect this will be a tough one. If nobody gets it pretty quickly I'll post more hints.......
And we have a winner! Explorer-1E - 1
Interesting note - The drawing of it on Wikipedia is by G. Harry Stine.
