    Very nice finds!
    The antenna is Swedish/Danish.
    The shell would have been a great thing to own: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Flasher_(SS-249)

    Thanks for the comments Id like to have that shell but 150 is to high for my college budget. Would that size of shell be fired off the deck gun? When I first saw the belt I thought it was some kind of field modification, glad to learn something new! anyone have any idea what that drum is for?

    HAHA do you think it is for food use? I originally thought that because of the preserve stamp. Do you think it is more modern or WWII era? If its WWII I am considering getting it because its dirt cheap.
