    Also picked this up a few months ago for $60. Still looking for the correct casing for it.

    Nice buys.

    It would be worthwhile to add text descriptions of your items so they can be found in future searches. It may help you find a case

    $200 for a RGD here in the U.S. is cheap. Over in the U.K., they seem to sell for $400-$500. One I saw last for sale in the U.K. was $550.

    Though in Russia/Ukraine, I see them around $150-$250, though you can find them easier there.

    Those prices quoted for the UK are high. I see them for far less here at shows.

    Here were some years ago prices for the mint ones (and really - they were MINT - in wrapping paper) 50 euros. But these were sold really quickly. RDG-33-s usually come from the 1941 battlefields, i'm not so sure if they were used any more in 1944-45 in large quantities. As far I have seen they find mostly F-1 Russian handgrenades from the 1944-45 battlefields.

    I recently got 15 RGD-33 fragmentation sleeves with a lot of original paint with other militaria. Actually I was not interested in these sleeves at all but as it was sold as one lot i had to take them also. If You say that prices are so high maybe it was a good investment:-).
