*Inert* American early WWII Mk 2 ‘Pineapple’ Grenade, fuze and container. 18210:39. - 18210:39
The Mk 2 grenade did not replace the failed Mk 1 grenade used by the U.S. military during World War I. 44 million were ordered and more than 21 million were completed (it was possible to convert Mk 1 grenade bodies to the Mk 2 configuration) before the war ended. It was formally standardized in 1920. The Mk 2, like the Mk 1, was manufactured of cast iron with a grooved surface divided into 40 knobs in 5 rows of 8 columns. This was intended to enhance fragmentation (in practice, it was found that the grooves did not enhance fragmentation as much as desired) and provide a better grip when handling and throwing the grenade. The grooves and knobs gave it the appearance of a pineapple, and are the origin of the nickname. It was also commonly referred to as a "frag" grenade. In the closing years of WWII the Mark II was produced with a solid base with the M10A3, or M6 series fuze depending on the explosive filler used. Yellow was the colour code for high explosive ordnance at this time and HE grenades were painted accordingly. Understandably this was found to be an impractical colour due to its high visibility to the enemy. In 1942 the colour was changed to ‘olive drab’ (OD) with a small yellow band. This example is the yellow high explosive grenade with fuze and container. The price includes U.K. delivery. 18210:39
