Here is a WW1 era US MK III Offensive grenade (inert). Orders for these began in early 1918, and nearly 5,000,000 were made by wars end, however only about 170,000 made it to the front before the war ended. It was made obsolete in 1919, but got revived in WW2 with an updated fuse. The body of the grenade in paper with a paraffin coating. It was filled with .27 lbs of TNT or Trojan Powder and had a 5 second fuse. These grenades today are rare and getting quite expensive.
