    This ammo is usable today, it came out of a ammo can that was still watertight. you can see the paint


    indicating a tracer every fifth round. Incredible find but not that unusual.

    Some Japanese helmets found near hill 140. The sewing machine was near China wall. the caves were stocked with everything needed to sustain a war effort.

    I am not a collector, I just like to visit these battlefields. I never take anything and I discourage my clients from taking anything. but with that being said in another ten years the environmental conditions (rusting away) and theft will remove most traces of the war. sad but that is just the way battlefields go.
