    Ermm....if he found them in a bunker, why on earth did the soldiers re-form all those cartridges and bullets ? Every single one in that picture has been fired yet still has the bullet in place which is, to say the least, a little odd !

    That is a kind of deactivation, in other case in Russia is a very strictly to have a live ordinance- foir that ammount you can easily spare a time not a here, but in prison

    Thankyou Sebastian for showing us more excellent finds!

    I was collecting in the early 1980's but sold it all when everyone seemed to be an "expert" and I got tired of all the comments as to what was genuine. ( this was back when a genuine SS zeltbahn was only $300 Australian dollars and a nice M35 double decal was the same .... oh, for those days again! )

    Now I am back collecting as the internet has opened up the world and at least with ground dug items there is no question ( in most cases ) about their originality. Good luck finding more treasures!

    That first helmet the model 35 with the decal is a nice find. Some tender loving care and a oxalic acid bath would make that shine.

    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

    Hi Paul E,
    I did not ever dig around Dmitrievka , Karpova or Baburkin Farm because it is far and I have not a car ;-)
