    Very nice condition on that Black Verwundetenabzeichen for sure...I've noticed over the years that Stalingrad relics, especially helmets and awards generally show more deterioration than those found on other battlefields...I believe it's the soil there...
    cheers, Glenn

    The BWB must surely have been wrapped in something secure or inside a box? I can't imagine it surviving in such condition simply laying in the soil.
    I asked my friend, he says that BWB was only in soil, ID tag too

    curious to know how many spent cartridges were found at this location??
    Today, I counted all spent cartridges ... about 1800 pcs

    There was a nervous atmosphere

    that was good for a few barrel changes I am sure. Thank you Sebastien for taking the time to satisfy my curiousity.

    hey...I see you are form Seattle I spend a lot of time there...every now and then.....after all the relics I have seen form this area...most of the ones in the surroundings (airfields) are in very bad shape, yet I seem to recall about the time I got my lid...several had the same condition....rather solid with some paint and decals....
