This is one of the most fantastic artifacts that you will ever get a chance to own. This is the very scarce Hanes patent Civil War hand grenade. In 20 years of dealing in Civil War memorabilia we have only been able to offer four of these beauties and this is the best one you will ever encounter. The outer shell is round and screws together at the equator. The top of the grenade is deeply marked "EXCELSIOR”. The bottom section is completely unmarked as it should be. Inside it contains the inner shell that has all of the brass nipples intact. When it was to be used the nipple would have had percussion caps placed all the way around with the live powder inside ready to go. As you can imagine the problem came when you drew your arm back to throw it they would explode. That is why they are so scarce. There was a notation in one of the early Bannerman catalogs that stated that they were so rare that he would only sell them to museum institutions, not individuals. This was coming from a man that would sell you enough cannon to arm a small country. This one is the finest one that is known. This is a truly spectacular original Civil War Hanes patent hand grenade.
