What type is this?-Grenade


#1

Friend has this, I cannot find it. It has a pull ring and a striker assembly, Any ideas?


#2

This is an Italian grenade from WWI.
Have to look for the designation. Will look it up in the coming days if no one will be faster.


#3

Ok, caught by chance a friend who is a designated WWI specialist:

It is a: “Petardo Offensivo” (hence the “PO”)


#4

Here’s a little more info on it: talpo.it/petardo-offensivo-p.o…html

It originally displayed in Italian, but there’s an English option “button” at the top of the page.

As for the grenade, my humble opinion is, it’s a fairly rare collectable in very good condition. An excellent specimen.

Just found this on BOCN: bocn.co.uk/vbforum/threads/8 … ID-grenade


#5

Yes, and it is exactly the same grenade shown on BOCN and it got identified there before.


#6

I thought it looked familiar.


#7

A member of my club just bought it. Where was it shown before?
