This is a genuine ww2 american pineapple grenade produced in the period of 1942-43 (not the post war rubbish that is put on as ww2)
The grenade is a rare specimen of the pineapple series due to its original colour of yellow which was used to indicate high explosives. But due to camoflage problems the grenades were all re-painted olive drab leaving only a small yellow ring at the top of the grenade to symbolise high explosive.

I MUST STRESS TO EBAY THIS GRENADE IS COMPLETELY INTERT AND CANNOT BE MADE INTO THE THE REAL THING AS NO PARTS FUNCTION.
This is a very nice quality peice of history which is in very good condition with about 90% of the paint still intact. T is a tiny marking on the fuse under the spoon which is some sort of symbol. For any more pictures please ask
I CAN ASSURE EVERYONE THIS IS 100% GENUINE AS WHEN I BOUGHT IT EXPLOSIVES WERE STILL CRYSTALIZED IN THE BOTTEM.
All explosives have now been removed and it has been filled with an epoxy resin.
I have 100% positive feedback and i am willing to post WORLDWIDE , I do offer postal insurance, any questions please ask.
postal insurance in europe would be £9.38
worldwide would be around £12.20
(BOTH INCLUDE COST TO POST AND ARE SIGNED FOR AT THE END ON ARRIVAL)
I am located in the UK and will use a national post office delivery which is very good.
Please DO not worry about postage if you are a foreign bidder. I can assure you the grenade will get to you!!!!!!
Thank you very much and happy bidding
