    Hi Big Ned ! Thanks for your reply.Unfortunately,those are not the real original MKII WWII era bodies,nor time period correct fuzes.They are only cheap copys,actually many are made in China,and available in bulk here in the United States.Ebay did infact for a while,allow the sale of the original grenade bodies I am seeking,but they have since been banned from the site,I'm not sure really why the ban from Ebay happened,as they are nothing but inert pieces of 60+ years-old,cast iron bodies.Infact,the last one I was able to locate,the fellow was using the body for a paperweight in his workshop ! Ha ha...Thanks again and regards - Grizzly.
