    Here's the second one. This is an M35 shell (EF66), with an M40 liner (58), but the chin strap hangers are M31 style aluminum, so I figure this was probably manufactured early 1940. It doesn't appear the liner was ever touched, nice and tight and untouched pins. It was originally the pea green color, then overpainted a darker feldgrau, and there is evidence of a whitewash, too. It looks like it was redecaled (SS over SS), possibly when repainted. Believe it is a Pocher decal.

    It's difficult to see, but in the rear skirt is scratched "KLAWIK". Haven't found this name anywhere.

    Hi Guys, new to this site and what a site it is. All the answers i was looking for have been covered, i plan to visit France this spring and would love to find anything of intrest, even just a spent round casing, i am not a collector of material things but of the history of all things 1939-45.

    Along Utah Beach (Ste Marie du Mont) there is a restaurant "Le Roosevelt" that is part of an old German bunker . There are artifacts for sale in the gift shop in the restaurant. I'm sure you might find some relics there.
