    World War I Grenade identification !

    No problem ! Oh yeah… if no lever and safety pin then could be life threatening consequences… …It feels like a thrown grenade, but it didn’t explode for some reason .. I sadly find all kind of „live“ stuff quite often while metal detecting, and if I have enough time then I’ll call EOD out, if no then back on the ground where it was. Best regards, Madis

    Spammer on site

    @Davejbfor some reason I am not getting notifications from the forum, who is the spammer? can you let me know. I agree, I have had to deal with several issues myself in the past, unable to remove problem user, but I always let Lenny know when possible. Let me know how I can help more, Dave. Thanks!

    Excellent example @IIAND! I have an M40 with a rough exterior, but a big size. ET66

    I agree with @Davejb, doesnt appear to have any traces of the red die, so most likely original leather. I've seen a view like this , but not many. I have one that still has the WW2 German strap.

    World War I Grenade identification !

    Thanks, these things bug me, I had to deal with a live Mills Grenade, that a guy found when me was out with his dog, and the fool handed in to our Police Station and I had to remove it to our wash down , The fuse had gone down and the handel was missing. We got EOD and were later told that the only thing that was stopplng the fuse was a bit of grit, and it was later blown up by EOD
  15. I hope that you and yours are coping with the current situation. Brain picking time … Just had in a big estate. It included one of the UVF-stamped MH carbines from the “Larne” --- I was wondering whether you knew anyone in the “6 Counties” who might be interested.. Best regards Jim Hallam (Note the new e-mail address --- better phone # is 01483476646)

    World War I Grenade identification !

    Hi, I cant be 100% but I think this might be a French F! fusante No/ !. However I am not to happy in the fact that this looks as if it still has the wick in place and the base nut has not been removed, are you sure that this has been de activated , was this from a dealer and if so did he say that if was safe and was it from a good dealer
  20. Hello, I need Help a bit ! I've never seen a grenade like this before… Origin ? Manufacturer ? Is anyone able to tell me a little about this grenade, it feels like it is from first World War. Markings: E&S 1915 Thank you in advance !
  21. It would be better if you show the item so the members can see but dont forget you have to have been a member on the forum for a while before you can sell items that is one of the standing rules and a safe guard for members

    Vernacular...

    Well I cant work out who did this, at the moment I am the only Mod on here, and it was not me, so it must be one of the forum higher ranking guys, but its strange that they did,nt tell you why, its normal to be told or at least to have a message sent explaning why its been removed

    From what I understand that dye is not all that easy to get rid of, so it looks to me as if its the original leather, you can see the markings
