We,v been in country side, near the Battlefield of Narva. There is many local digers who collect color and black metall in the forest just for recycling. Parts of tanks, planes, messtens and cantens. Sometimes we can buy this staf just like this time, we bought a basic part of alluminium messtens and cantens, caps and spoons and sigaret cases.
We will clean those things. About 90 percents of them with inscriptions, part of them with nise battle damages.
Lately i will put pics wth most interesting cleaned items.
