    I forgot to mention that one of our workers found this .50cal dummy round in the heap a few days ago. The headstamp reads: FA 4

    Also, a LONG time ago I found these German letters in the trash. I totally forgot about them but would like to have them translated. I'll take quality pics of them tonight! Who should I turn to on the forum for help translating?

    Thank you, sir! I just read that the "4" nails it down as 1944.

    For those of you interested, here is a write up done about our recycling facility:

    Today was my first day working in a while! I spoke to a customer who said he is cleaning out an old Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) Hall and he said he would bring me anything he finds. I also found this nice sewn 50star flag.

    Seeing it neglected like this really kills me...

    Most unfortunately, this flag should be respectfully retired and burned.
