    Great thread Bill.

    Here's a photo of my Dad holding a "Potato Masher" and an 88 shell. He didn't bring it back though.

    Nice grenade and great history to go with it Bill. This is the type of thing that makes this hobby so much more fun than just buying an item from a dealer. Thanks for posting it.
