Russian design, com bloc made. Dated 1950's, well marked. F1 frag on the left, RG42 frag on the right. Training grenades filled with inert substance for proper weight. image.jpeg

Notice for some reason, the safety pin is installed on the far side if grasped like a US grenade, with lever positioned between thumb and fore finger. That leads me to believe they position them in the hand with the lever held down with four fingers instead of the palm of the hand.
