    Communist F1 ceramic grenades

    Hi. Does anybody know anything about these F1 ceramics coming out of Poland? They’ve been had to fine for a while, but now there seems quite a few around. Cheers

    I think they are just a variant on the more commonly seen ceramic F1, which are Russian experimental grenades from WW2. I'm told most came from the Kurland area. I bought one like this one years ago that had a standard Russian WW2 fuze. I think it came from Russia or an eastern European country, but not Poland. I haven't seen this variant in quite a while. Where are you finding these for sale?

    Hi. The ones I’ve seen are coming out of Poland. I’m not sure where they were found. I got this one from Delcampe. I’ve cleaned it up and added an early WW2 Fuze, which I think looks the part. Cheers
