    Do they scan everything and confiscate military items?

    Once i had bought a relic helmet from a seller in Volgograd with no issues at all.
    Russian customs are difficult to predict ...
    my friend has the experience, his parcel with german helmet was returned. It's a risk.

    Maybe I'll have ebay account for some items.

    HELLO to everyone
    Today I was walking near the place of my mother's work , that in the center of Volgograd (Stalingrad). There is an interesting gully. In the gully I found a small bakelite bottle production in 1940, two years ago .
    I again decided to explore this place.
    I do not have a metal detector this feeling inside me .
    The slope of the ravine attracted me. I dug a small hole and I found some coins. They were two pfeninga, franc and russian kopejka
    I dug a big hole and found the remains of a German soldier.
    He was buried under a pile of household garbage, garbage promptly inserted after the war. Body the soldier was not the feet (may be they were frozen or they can be eaten by dogs after the war). The soldier was stripped. He had no dog tags . Pity the soldier without name.
    I think the soldier is a German. This is a man of medium height, not young.
    I exhumed him. Do not worry about the remains of a German soldier, I know people from official group (Union of German Cross), and soon I will give them the remains of a soldier.

    This confirmation THAT IS DIE IN STALINGRAD
    on the video I speak russian...

    The small bakelite bottle must be the one that I had received from Tom ?? Very interesting find and very sad. At least
    now he has been given a proper burial.

    Hi to everyone,
    Today I was walking in the city of Volgograd (Stalingrad).
    Near my home and my university has some interesting places. I found some German bunkers, they are covered with modern debris, but it is not a barrier.

    Hi guys .
    Today is my lucky day !
    Today I didn't go to my university. I went into the ravine, where deployed the German and Romanian army units.
    I dug up a variety of military rubbish, but also I found a very pleasant discovery .
    I dug up my the first German helmet and my the first buckle, really .

    I can't stop , I guess that I may have problems with my studies .
    Video about my excavations in 2010-2012.

    There's a very significant place for me.

    A small ravine next to my university. I call it - V.Yel'shanka point.

    Here in the video I try to speak English. I think it's very funny sounds ...

    That was a very interesting film on your previous diggings. Also, your English is very good (much better than my Russian!).

    Video about real story dug up Spanish cross and 1939 Spange EK1

    Not sure if this was an old post (lol...I thought I had seen them all), or if this is a recent find. But this is absolutely wonderful. Truly a find that would be hard to top. I have two Spanish Crosses, one with it's original issued award document. While I just love them, one like yours is a true treasure. Quite would look fantastic between mine...LoL!

    Congrats and keep up the good work!

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
