This "literally" fell into my lap. I understand that it is an early WWII MKII Hand grenade and the yellow denoted HE. There is a screw in the bottom.

What are these worth?

Thanks...

BUT - What are they worth? I have one I received from a vet in the early 70's (when I was a kid). So I'll be eventually selling this one and have NO CLUE what they are bringing.

Tom, Basically its "worth" how much someone is willing to pay you. A few of these have sold on the forum here and ebay in the past. I would start to research on both places and then decide what you want to "ask" for the grenade. B)

Easily $150- $200 range. You might want to check if it's live before you sell it.

Hi Dave. I've received other messages....(?)(?)

You can always email me.

However, I may decide to keep this one and sell a nice OD MKII with the yellow band instead.

I'm told that eBAY will no longer accept real inert grenades. Only practice types. Gun Broler has ll types listed regrlarly. Several Militaria web sights also list grenades when they have them.

I picked one like this up off of GB a while back for arouind $240 if I remember correctly. More recently I bought a "narrow base" yellow from another collector for $300 but it had the more rare re-called M10A1 fuze in it so that upped the price a bit. In my opinion a broad range would be $200 to $300. as 'GdP' said, "Basically its "worth" how much someone is willing to pay you."
