100% Original CHICOM T68 grenade. Just like the type NVA were tossing at our guys in Vietnam. Completely inert. Cannot be made to be used. Unfortunately when I bought a few of these the previous owner had stained the handle with wood stain because he apparently thought they looked to "new" I removed the stain and unfortunetly the CHICOM markings and date underneath. I am not sure who was smarter, me or the other guy. Still a nice piece of DEWAT ordinance to fill a CHICOM leg pouch or display. LOW opening bid. Good luck finding a real one this cheap!
