I believe there are only two known specimens in existence. I heard that the list time one changed hands that thousands of dollars were involved.

IIRC they produced less than 200K and these were used for training. Most ended up in South Africa.

for what it is worth, I also have one on my wish list :)

For what it is worth the number of .303" MK III known is 5. Only one is a complete loaded ball round & it resides in Merry Olde. I understand the sum paid for it was counted in the thousands of dollars.
In The Woodin collection there are three. I believe two are dummies & one is a sectioned display example with the powder The 5th also resides AZ. It is a sectioned display dummy but has no powder.
There are a couple of other examples known with a MK III marked case but those are without the MK III bullet.

Is this for the FJ first type rifle grenade? That was called gg/p40 or similar I believe?

Yes it is

I have two of the launchers but not the ammo or grenades yet

Can’t help with this kind of stuff.
