As of now I am pretty sure its a post WWII grenade. Possibly a Vietnam era MK 2 Grenade? Near the neck it has these number 737J what they mean I dont know. And on the body of it it has 5 and then if you rotate it there is PFX. Any info on this that you all may know is greatly appreciated.

I "thought" the old pineapple was WWII/korea only, but they didn't trust us with them in the Navy..

Dunno Snake,

all I know is that the Coast guard frowned on grenades in the hanger, google it, I'm sure there is plenty of info out there.

This is the iconic steel U.S. fragmentation pineapple grenade as used in WWII.
