    m1917 smooth egg grenade - be on lookout

    I have been able to attend a couple of shows and was bothered by the offering of m1917 n/A egg grenades that had the
    grip ring ground off and were trying to be passed as m1917 smooth egg. Some are extremely difficult to tell as even the real
    smoothies have somewhat of a raised edge in the center. The only way I could say to avoid this would be to find your m1917
    smoothie with original finish where fresh grinding cannot hide. I can't beleive what people will do for a few bucks but saw 2
    examples at one show and 1 at another. My smooth egg has original finish that is beat up enough to know it is right. Just
    something to keep in mind and be on the lookout..........Dano (looking forward to being back on web in early February)
