    Yes, but of the base plug, not the grenade body.

    The blue body is a US MKII Practice. The 'lemon' shaped one
    is US, post WWII, and is an M61. The small 'baseball' type
    is a US M67. Blue levers are for Practice grenades.

    Not sure if the M61 and M67 are dummies/replicas,
    but they look like it.........

    Thanks for the additional info. These were all in a shoebox. Two off the levers were loose and I just screwed them in were they fit.

    After searching around it seems like the Japanese grenade is worth a lot more than all the others togeather.

    They're all nice Kirby. The Mills is worth some as well.
    The Japanese grenade is missing it's clip with
    a short string attached.........

    The M26/61 and the M67 definitely aren't actual grenades, but probably dummies because they're so rough- real combat grenades are smooth and painted OD. Proper military practice ones are painted blue though- one sees these really rough cast iron ones at surplus stores pretty regularly, fitted with real fired practice fuses though, which you seem to have.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Nice lot of Japanese British and US post war. I don't know all the details of the post war US ones but that round one we called them "Baseball grenades" I threw quite a few in the US Military in the early 70's we practiced with ones painted blue with a detonator only in them then graduated up to the all Od paint live ones. Nice grenades and both the Japanese and British are getting hard to find. timothy
