Germany: WW2 M39 "EGG" GRENADE. Ground dug from a Russian forest. Complete including the fuse assembly but in relic condition. This is the later 1942 variant with a small metal plate to the bottom of the grenade to attach a ring to it so that it could be carried more easily and in greater numbers. Remains of the original green paint still visible on the fuse assembly. Overall very heavy surface rust that has penetrated completely through the metal in places, leaving some small holes. To add to this, Australian Customs has cut a vertical 50mm long 10mm wide hole in the side as per the new regulations. Fortunately the item still displays well from the front. M39s are highly sort after in any condition and are especially difficult to obtain in Australia. Relic Grade III+
