Just picked up this grenade.
Paid $350, which is around what they go for in the U.S in this condition.
Here is the pictures from the auction. I'll get better ones once it arrives.
Handle is marked 42gck from the look of it.
How did I do?

Second that nice 'potato masher' m24. timothy
nice grenade but seems a bit dear to me phew.
Grenade arrived today. A little PO'd with the Post Office because when it arrived, the box was open partially, likely during shipment, or it was opened to make sure it was inert. Oh well, it arrived safe at least.
It has a small rust hole that was filled on the head (you can see it from the inside on the third picture on the initial post), and I can't make out the maker/date yet on the head (rusty). Handle is solid with no cracks.
Only downside is the top collar on the handle is a little loose. It is the pieced tab variation. Any way to tighten it up?
