What is that grenade ?

 

Great score.

 

I'm not an expert but that flare made it this far without going off.

 

Might have been in a hot attic for all we know.

After looking online, it seems the grenade is a French 1916 OF grenade. The fuze is dated 1936.

I will leave it at that, as it is not US, I don't want to discus it further & risk having the post deleted!

Now I need to figure out where I can get the pieces to complete the fuze & I'll have a nice French piece to add to my display! I'm sure there were a few US GIs who carried any grenades they could get their hands on!

Hello Morlok,

 

Thats a mighty nice 315th Infantry Regiment DUI pin there (blue with four green circles with Cross of Lorraine. My uncle served with them during WWII and If your looking to trade for something up your specific collecting alley, maybe there's somethig we could talk trade about. By the looks may be that they are pre WWII at least the one. Either way cool pins and great batch of items you got there.

 

Best Regards

 

Jim
