Hi again Justin, Just looked at the one you bought on SA. NICE grenade. that has the m1915 zinc-alloy igniter, correction either had 8 or 5 second delay which was denoted by a red band originally around body of igniter. there was also one other igniter that is not shown in the line up of five I showed. It was 0 sec delay booby trap igniter left behind by retreating German troops so when the enemy pulled the loop - blamo!!! Dano (P.S. the guy you bought off of has great prices but rats he won't ship to US). Show us some pics when you get it....
It was advertised as a " WWI GERMAN - EIREHANDGRANATE" 1917 with fuse"
The link to the auction page is:
It is for sure an Artillery igniter fuse for canons but I didnt heard that germans was useing it in eggs as booby trap igniter but I cant say that it was no possible.Wow, you made me get red :tinysmile_shy_t:. Thank you for your words... they are true... Hahaha. This trap fuze is totally real and original, not a fake and was an Artillery igniter fuze for canons as delay was 0 seconds. I dont remember where I got that info, if anybody know more or believe that Im wrong, please post a message. If not, keep you in silence for ever.....
