Hello,

I thought that you might be interested in this item, a Boer hand grenade, with the following inscription around the circumference in silver.

Quote:

HAND GRENADE FOUND AT KOOMATI POORT, THE SAME AS USED BY THE BOERS AT THE SIEGE OF MAFEKING.

Unquote.

I'd be interested for your comments. Bought before the advent of the internet, when collecting was much more fun. I will try and load some photographs in due course.

Best regards,

Hello,

I'm afraid I'm experiencing a few problems uploading the photographs, so if anyone can help, it would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks,

The images cannot be more than 800 pixels in either dimension but if that was the case you should see a message to that effect.

Please email me an image to have a look at.

Hello David,

TheBreaker,

The issue was that the images were too large. I have resized them and attach them below.

Best wishes
David
