    Particularly impressive is the Samartian arrow point. It makes a person think, when holding something straight from the ground where it's laid for perhaps 2600 years or more right where it fell-perhaps locked inside the body of a killed enemy whose remains have long since completely vanished through time. Amazing find!

    We also found this item. I think it's from a German aircraft

    A.993.99-8.

    Maybe you can help me to identify this?

    Certainly looks like an aircraft part to me Sebastien. I'll see if I can track the code down. Can you make the missing letters/numbers out ?

    Is it made of lead? it looks like a balance weight from the front of a flying control: rudder, aileron or elevator.

    Yes, it is made of lead.

    There are letters A.993.99-8. or A.993.99-B.

    Probably Russian/American. Most German balance weights were steel and the number would begin R8. The Germans didn't have much spare lead!
