Looks like a great collection of ordnance in the background as well!

Impressive grenade case collection.
Thanks guys! I'm pretty proud of them! Actually I was gonna sell some of them just to help pay for some of it, but I couldn't Break up the family after all these guys have been through. The case & the grenades themselves are not that great. Some of them are in relic condition, no markings still visible on any of them, some handles were in bad shape, etc. but it's rather the history behind it. This group of ordnance IS history! It wasn't necessarily the reason I bought it, but it is reason I'm gonna keep it.
