    I understand it's frowned upon to sell them after reading through the forum. I am fascinated with the war and want to become a young collector (I'm 17) that possibly one day I could donate. Unfortunately, it's not realistic for you to honor me with one. The least I could do is pay you for one.
    Also, how did you come across these?

    Welcome to the forum. Good to see someone so young taking an interest in the history of WW2.

    The finds in this thread have all been recovered from Normandy by various means, although usually with a metal detector. Unless you live in mainland Europe or can get there easily, the only way for you to obtain them is from other relic hunters. However, there is a big problem here because a large number of items from WW2 are now faked and, without a good depth of knowledge of the subject, you could easily be fooled.

    The long and short is, use this forum to learn about the subject area, and learn how to recognise originals from fakes. If you want to find items yourself, have a look in the metal detecting forum which will give you lots of advice about where to start and how to find things. It also highlights the laws on battlefield relic recovery and the possible dangers.

    Good luck.
