    If you could take a picture of some of the headstamps, especially the one with the crown, that would be good

    That must have been in the box over the Crete Finds.. and rolled over into it.. It is found in Hanko in the Finnish southern archipelago were the Finns fought the Soviets in 1941. Sorry about the confusion but its really a very rare find indeed from "the continuation war" 1941-1944.
