Hi there, folks!
Here are some trinkets from the military shop and privately owned army dump (near Novi Sad, Serbia) I visited several weeks ago. There are literally tons of cheap army stuff there (mostly Yugoslav Peoples Army garbage, YPA, or JNA in serbian). I found these Yugoslav Universal Helmets (JUŠ) M59/85 on a large pile several metres high. It was quite a difficult climb, but I managed to find two ones in a good condition Camouflage covers and nets I got for free. Near the helmet hill was a nice “sculpture” made of old m57 rocket launchers (Yugoslav variant of Russian RPG-2). Other stuff include: one practice antitank rifle grenade (in serbian BTKM M68) made of plastic and aluminium (used with M48 Mauser rifle, SKS and AK-47), ammo pouch for M48 rifle, two entrenching tools - old US AMES 1944 (with cyrillic initials M.П) and a brand new one, tri-fold type, still in use by the serbian army. There is also a pickaxe stamped with year 1953 (I can’t figure out the makers’ mark) and another practice round, 30mm caliber, obviously from the m53/59 Praga SPAAG. It’s unfired, and full of gunpowder. The projectile has a broken tip, it’s made of some sort of white plastic with rusted iron parts inside. Any help about this type of ammo is appreciated.
