    Default Unknown stick grenade?

    Hello all,
    Can anyone help me identify this stick grenade? It belongs to an aquantance who wishes to sell it to help raise money to purchase a uniform for his collection. He tells me that the head is glued to the stick and is not sure if this is a "marraige" or a genuine piece. He thinks the white painted band indicates that it was a smoke grenade.
    This has me confused as I'm not an expert on grenades although it seems somehow familier to me.
    If anyone can help me help him I will be most gratefull and I may be able to persuade him to join WRF.
    Very hopeful regards,

    I think it is a bit of a hybrid. Looks like a German smoke grenade stick, and an M43 frag grenade head. The band on the stick and the ridges toward the bottom both indicate a smoke grenade; the ridges make it easy to identify with just your hands. The head for a smoke grenade has holes in around the bottom of the canister to allow the smoke to disperse.

    Model 43 steilhandgranate with an early model handle. The 43 had a solid handle.

    Thanks all,
    Any idea whether it's worth him offering this for sale, if so what sort of asking price? Any more info gratefully received.
    Cheers,
    Guy.

    It has a M1943 head , with a smoke grenade handle ( the ridges around the bottom ) as stated above . As a miss matched item pricing will be difficult .

    I don't know the going rate for grenades really. I would say though that it would be around 30/40% of the price for a complete matched example.

    Thanks Chris,
    I will let him know, I thought a mismatch could be tricky to price. I'm looking for 'Paul the grenade's' website to see if he can help?
    many thanks,
    Guy.

    Thanks KradSpam,
    Any idea how much a complete matched one goes for?
    Cheers,

    An M43 in good condition would go for 350 - 400 , this one i think is very hard to price as it isn't even a correct hybrid .
