    Default 1944 German Large Anti-Tank Rifle Grenades Box, found in my garden shed!

    Hello all,

    Well yesterday I had a bit of a surprise whilst clearing through the shed in my garden. We haven't lived in the house long and the shed is full of old junk left behind by the previous owners.

    Well that's what I thought until this caught my eye at the back of a pile of boxes and other bits. It looks to have been used as a tool box for quite some time!

    Can anyone tell me anything else about this box? Unfortunately I guess I will never know how it ended up in my garden shed.

    Is there any hope for restoring it/recovering its condition? It would be great if anyone had any advice on how to rescue it if that is even possible!

    Ha Ha! Yeah, I nearly had a heart attack when I saw it. I actually go out trying to find WW2 items and this was in my shed all along.

    Wow, now that really is a great find, I love it.

    It is fully restorable which will definately improve the appearance, here's a link to another forum
    Before and after
    it shows plenty of great restorations on German ammo boxes and other items and if you read through it also provides the tried and tested methods.
    If you can manage to restore it to the quality of these you'll have a great show piece. If you do attempt to please photograph the stages and post it on the Restoration section.
    Good Luck.

    Great find!

    I don't like restoration at all, only cleaning, I think that restoration will erase history.

    Here are photos of my box, now it is sold to England, may be some time somebody will find it in garden shed
