Thanks for sharing your adventures with us Sebastien, it has been a very interesting read, i will definitely be following your story with interest as you discover more interesting pieces of history.
Every piece that comes out of Stalingrad is interesting. If i was using my metaldetector in this big area, i would try to detect along the old roads.
It must be difficult to detect here because of the big amount of destroyed items, and shrapnels.
Good luck, you are living in a historical treasure chest, and you have a metal detector... Yes i envy you..
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

Is ex friend because he sold it? However you make great job arround Stalingrad!!!
I dug Spanish cross and I was the first... and then, in this hole, he dug up Spange ... He took Spange myself. I was not opposed because it is his find. But he wanted to sell the Spanish cross and share the money ... I was against it, and now we do not dig together...
