I do not ship Internationally.
My apologies to collectors outside the U.S.A.
Items FOR SALE

I'm downsizing my collection. Posting here first, for a while, then maybe moving what's left to auction.
Not sure how far I want to go with my "house keeping" effort, but expect to have more items at a later date.

(You might want to copy the images available for your archives as I don't plan on continuing to post those afterwards.)


Mills Bomb Sectioned Body, WWI

No.5 or No.23 Body. Unmarked base plug.
Letters "T" (under the lever) and "D" (under the fill plug) cast in the body.
Flattened area on the far side, possibly to use as an ash tray? ("Trench Art")
Or as a wall mounted display? (Sectional)
Looks like a filled hole in the center of the flat area.

The lever is a reproduction, very nicely done. Cast bronze.


SOLD
Mills Bomb, Body Only, WWII

No.36, Unusual markings under the fill hole.
Overstamped numerals and characters, followed by "B M", "2", "1942"

Mills Bomb, No.5 MkI, WWI

Body has traces of the original finish showing an overall dark patina.
Small piece missing, lever pivot-slot "ear" (pin side).

The lever is a reproduction, very nicely done. Cast bronze.
Safety Pin is modern.

Otherwise all other parts are authentic
Centerpiece and base plug are aluminum. (Some deformation around the spanner holes.)
Early un-vented (not slotted) striker.


SOLD
Mills Bomb, No.5 MkI, WWI

The overall apperance seems consistant with a complete dug relic.
All parts appear correct.
Body has likely been bead blasted.
Fill plug is still sealed to the body.

The brass centerpiece has been drilled (twice) to remove the filler. Lots of verdigris inside. Appears to be the early built-up design (not cast).
Det tube can be seen inside separated from the centerpiece.


SOLD
 
Nose Fuze, German, WWII

AZ 5071 Nose Fuze, found on the 30mm HE GewehrSprenggranate Rifle Grenade.
The original staking prevents disassembly.

It appears the internals are present (weight), the plunger has spring tension on it, but (obviously) internal conditions are unknown.

Overall brown partina obscures the markings, but it still presents well.

Rifle Grenade, German, WWI

Model 1917 Rifle Grenade, Cup-Launched.
Stamped "GWH", (looks like an incomplete "G" not a "C"?)

Relic - Repainted.

"M67" U.S. Frag, c.1973

A "M67" without the M67 body, using a repainted M69 instead.
Color and texture are a good match to the original.

The M213 Fuze and the M415A1 Transit Can are both authentic and in very nice condition. Original styrofoam insert.
Can and fuze dated "1-73" and "3-73", respectivley.
Fuze complete with "Jungle Clip".

(Original M67 prices (no can) have been north of $600, as of this writing.)
A respectable "place holder" for your collection.

The "M67" compared to the M69 and an authentic M67....
 
USMC Training Aids, Vietnam

I understand these to be USMC Training Aids, for use in NVA / Vietcong weapon identification classes, made by a government contractor.
These models have no functional parts, just for visual shape identification.
Long Stick, with Russian RP-1 series fragmentation grenade and a RGD-5 mock-up.

Interesting Vietnam era background pieces.

$185 - for the pair.

These aids compared to their real-life counterparts....

Grenade, Lachrymatory (Tear Gas), French, Post 1960

Lacrymogène Mle.46 Gas Grenade w/ BA Mle.35 Fuze (Long Lever)

Body: "Gr Lac 64 / CB 1,5 / 59-ACX-68" Fuze: "SAE 11 63
Shipping container held the grenade only. (Upside-down with a large transit plug - not present.)
There are the 3 metal (spent) containers inside the grenade body, which held the chemical.

The transit can is correct, but the lot numbers don't match.
A nice grouping, hard to find.
