What a unique gift for the history buff or military inspired person! Makes a cool paper weight or display piece and it's especially a great teaching aid to use in any history classroom to get the students' attention!
This is an inert grenade, which is also known as a Practice or Dummy Grenade. The shape and dimensions of the grenade are the same as the real Lemon Grenade. It was made from the genuine mold that was used by the US military and it is the exact copy of the USGI grenade. It includes the replica head, ring and spoon assembly.
The Lemon Grenades were first used during the Korean War era. Like the pineapple, these grenades were also extensively used by U.S. troops from the early stages of the Vietnam war.
