Original Item: Only One Available. This is a truly excellent condition original German World War Two stick smoke grenade carry case, complete with internal rack for transporting 15 Nb. 39 Nebelhandgranate ("smoke hand grenade") stick hand grenades.

An amazing set, offered in near mint condition, not to be seen again!
History of the Nb. 39 Nebelhandgranate-
In 1939 the Stielhandgranate design was modified to create the Nebelhandgranate ("smoke hand grenade"). Smoke was used for masking protection from enemy fire and signaling. There are two variants, the Nb.Hgr.39 and the Nb.Hgr.39b The "b" version differs in the handle, having raised ridges and an additional white band to aid in identification at night. The Nb.39 "pot" contained a mixture of zinc powder and hexachlorethane which produced a smoke cloud upon ignition. Holes in the bottom provided an escape path for the smoke as it burned.
