    Very nice relics. The dry atmosphere where you are has kept the links in good condition. Here in England they fall apart as soon as you dig them up. Yours look like you could quite easily re-use them !

    The headstamp of the 50cal I can see is dated 1942. Are all of them WW2 dated ?

    The 'belt' of spent cases......have you put this together with individual links that you found or did you find them like that ?

    Keep up the good work
