Germany: WW2 M39 "EGG" GRENADE. Ground dug from a Russian forest. Complete including the fuse assembly but in relic condition. This is the later 1942 variant with a small metal plate to the bottom of the grenade to attach a ring to it so that it could be carried more easily and in greater numbers. Remains of the original green paint still visible on the fuse assembly. Overall very heavy surface rust that has penetrated completely through the metal in places, leaving some small holes. To add to this, Australian Customs has cut a vertical 50mm long 10mm wide hole in the side as per the new regulations. Fortunately the item still displays well from the front. M39s are highly sort after in any condition and are especially difficult to obtain in Australia. Relic Grade III+

Germany: WW2 M-1924 STICK GRENADE. Rare opportunity to purchase an example, as they are not permitted to be imported by Australian Customs anymore. Ground dug from Russia. All original components. Hardwood handle with aluminium screw cap that was removed prior to activating the grenade. Faint markings to the handle ending in '40'. Steel cap to the other end of the handle for attaching the explosive filled head. Head is in relic condition and has significant rust. There is an approx. 50mm long 10mm wide hole to the side of the head, courtesy of Australian Customs (when even clearly inert vintage ordinance was either sectionalised or had large sections removed.) Still displays well. One of the iconic weapons of WW2 and instantly recognisable even to those who do not collect militaria. Totally inert. Grade III (P)
