Grenade identification?

Looks like a standard mk2 frag, I am probably wrong assuming it’s pre ww2 it’s probably a French f1 as that is the only one that looks similar, I know their are differences between spoons, but I would seek better advice

The very late WW1 grenades switched fuze design and used a cutback and short spoon. Some say they never reached the front in time.I posted a War Department ordnance pamphlet ( dated 1919) way back showing a sample stating WW1 grenade. It pictured a WW1 grenade body with the cut back/ short spoon. 
 

I have one, but need to find it to post a picture.
