Grenade With Weird Chromed Fuse & Spoon

Recommended Posts

Looking at buying this one, this is the only pic he supplied. Is it a lighter? Mounted on a base, and looks like a real grenade, but the fuse & spoon are throwing me, value? Thanks for any help, Ken

It is a lighter. I believe the body is also commercially manufactured. I have one and the body has black crinkle finish and a slightly different "fuse".

They are original ww2 mark 2 grenade bodies but the threads for the fuse have been drilled out and made larger to accept the lighter assembly. An original fuse won't fit anymore.

Like Robin said in his post they are original and have been reworked, they have been doing this even after WWI. Hear is a ad on the early ones from WWI.
