    Sebastien........clean all the alloy pieces. There is likely to be a number on those somewhere as well, and/or even a factory inspection stamp.

    Nice finds, but how did a Reichswehr buckle ends up in Stalingrad.

    On the belt of a Wehrmacht soldier most likely.

    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

    Correct. We often find Reichwehr E-tool as well. Not to mention Bren carrier wheels(from Lend-Lease) and so forth.

    Regarding the aircraft part..99 on the Allied side could be Bristol Beaufighter or P51 Mustang!!!
    So with the dark primer, I am leaning towards German!
    Does it have the remains of fabric covering?
    Cheers Mike

    Quite likely the same way I've seen so many Polish uniform buttons also dug in Stalingrad...
