Thought I would share this one,

Is as bought,,,, well nearly, it came with a smooth stick and the can that belongs with this handle has the lettering printed upside down, with light cleaning should come up quite nice.

opinions on handle configuration would be appreciated please smooth or grooved ?

nice grenade

Hi Jeeeensy, that is one sweet stick grenade, you must be proud as new papa! I must add that there has been some posts where the question is brought up whether or not to restore. That head is so cool that's one that should be left alone in my opinion. Dano

Hi Miguel,

Around 1940 the handles changed from smooth to grooved ?

Smokin! lol....very nice indeed! the Nb and Nb39 marked ones are rare items, I have one thats Nb39 like yours and the white ring is around the centre of the can....no where near as nice condition wise as that beauty of yours.As for the handles....bit of a stab in the dark as to introduction date.

Are the Nb and Nb39 marked cans dated? my one has a paint marking on the side of can that looks like 40.
Best Regards
