    I tend to lean in that direction too. But hard to say. They where not that deep but being on a slope soil could of course have eroded over time. I would just imagine that if they were buried for safe keeping, they would be in a box of some sort.

    Makes a nice change from finding all those pesky Ritterkreutzen with oakleaves and swords.

    I was lying. We actually found these coins in a cave next to 10 dead NKVD officers and all their belongings.
    Did they have their Hero of the Soviet Union medals as well ?

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    These are a contemporary loss around the dates of the coins ... and have nothing to do with the bunkers
    Most probably a dropped purse ..... ... leather has rotted away ..
    Nice find .

    Those NKVD officers must have been nostalgic of the tsarist regime of yore!
