So... the Baseball Hall of Fame just contacted me. They may be interested in acquiring the film!
hi joe,whats happening with the baseball reel,what a find
Nice finds,Joe! I'm glad we have you on our side preserving such items. I can't believe what people throw away. It just goes to show what the ' dumbing down' of America has done. We don't care about the past..just what's on the reality shows and what Obamas speech was..even though he read it from a TelePrompTer .
Joe, the only markings - if any - will be a factory number cast
into the side of the 'lever'. Replacement pins and rings are
very easy to locate. What a great find.........!
Thanks Dean and Steve!
Judging by the pic, I think I see 6 or 9. I am on call and can't leave campus right now, but as soon as I can, I'll be sure to pick these two up and take better photos!
Here are two other 'MKI-AI' Training grenades for comparison.
They were bought separately from dealers at militaria shows
a few years apart. I believe the numbers are factory series
or production codes.........
Nice, Steve! Those two look a lot like the one on the right in my photo.
Do you have any idea where I can find a replacement pin? I see them on ebay, but they're in lots of 5 or more.
