    HI all

    I AM having a REALLY good few weeks at the carboots

    What with the books and shell casing just recently I didn't think my luck would continue to hold. But it has

    I caught sight of the clip in the middle of a display and immediately noticed that the cartridges in the LE clip weren't 303's. They looked more like 7.92's and, on checking the headstamps, found them all to be WW2 dated.

    I asked how much.

    £1

    I haggled a bit

    Got them for 75p

    LE clip and 5 WW2 dated German 7.92mm's. Not bad

    Not bad Steve! Unfortunately my camera is packed away ready for the move, but I managed to bag three German gasmask tins, and M35 German Helmet shell and a German messtin this morning for 50 euros all in! Had to get up early for that though

    Excellent Gents! Both got good sales today. What was on mine? Nothing but a pair of scabby 1980's Jerry cans. Didn't bother lol! You'd think with over 300 stalls there'd be something.

    You are pretty lucky. I never have good finds here. The only thing I have found was a mess kit, but I came back to buy it and some one had left with it.

    Take a look again at the primers these have been struck by a firing pin.
