    I think this might be it. Perhaps a Belguim practice grenade.

    Not so sure there. It was labeled as Belgium practice grenade.

    I think the grenade itself is approx 1900's era, due of big hole- for the black powder, typical for the grenades of that period. We just can ask in which area you fond this.?
    If it's British, then it can be the Mills prototype

    Looks like one of ther really early british grenades used around the time of waterloo, filled with black powder and a wick which passed through the loop on the side.....but could be wrong
