GRENADE – FRENCH “BALL”, MODEL 1847 WITH M1882 SIMPLIFIED IGNITER, EXC+, NON-DUG, THIS IS THE GRENADE FRANCE WENT TO WAR WITH IN 1914 – THE ONLY ONE THEY HAD IN INVENTORY AT THAT TIME. STATESIDE SALES ONLY. RARE SINCE THEY WERE ALL USED UP EARLY IN THE WAR. DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE FUSE WAS NOT SEALED WELL AND COULD BE PULLED OUT OF THE GRENADE UPON IGNITION THEY WENT TO THE 1914 FUSE THAT WAS NOW THREADED INTO THE BALL.
