Nebeleihandgranate 42 Smoke Grenade

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is a Nebeleihandgranate 42, a German smoke grenade with a Zündschnuranzünder 39 igniter. The grenade was made of two parts of fairly thick gauge steel crimped together with the smoke producing substance in the lower body and the ignition compound in the upper. These could also be fired from the LP42 flare pistol. This one is ground dug but still has much of it’s original green paint job.
