First off, please direct me to the proper forum if this is not the appropriate place for this question. I've posted in other areas but either nobody is finding it or wants to reply. I know there are a ton of experienced folks in this forum so I'm hoping to get some opinions/guidance based on your experiences.
My two brothers and I are visiting Germany in a few months (June) for my older brother's 40th birthday and want to metal detect for a couple days while there. We're all WWII collectors, but the birthday boy is very much into Archeology as well, in fact I believe it was his college major.
The tour company we're using is hooking us up with a German local who will be taking us around for just this purpose. He's a gentleman they've been using for years and was in WWII (on the German side) at age 17...Hitler Youth... and knows his way around the battlefields.
My questions are...
Should we be concerned about legalities?
If so, what do we need to know or be aware of (besides the obvious... undetonated ammunition)?
Where are some of the best places to MD in your experience?
How do we get whatever we find back to the States?
You guys have been through this numerous times so your experience and advice is appreciated, more than you know! The last thing I want to do is go into this unprepared and end up in a German prison because I didn't ask questions first.
