    Hungarian dog tag is also irrelevant since also latewar hungarian troops had a superstition that if you marked your dog tag (perforations for year or birth, location code and the number of the child at birth that year) you won't return home ... so it's a mockery, no real data on this one.


    lots of great finds there and really interesting about the dog tag superstition

    It must be great to be able to help keep history alive by digging for items like your finds keep up the good work

    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

    Hello

    I have read the rules and fully understood them. You can see our Metal Detecting community (Romania) at DetectieMetal.com(unitate). Here is our latest national Militaria expedition in the Carpathian Mountains (Moldavian 1917 WW1 front) : DetectieMetal.com(unitate) (my username there is Panzer, I am one of the Admins of the community).
    You can take a look at our National MD meetings (2014 and 2015) which have Militaria and Medieval mixed alltogether for further documents or kindly as any of the staff there for refference to my personna.

    All above depicted items have been dugout legally in Romania mostly on wooden hills, forrests and State property which is legal to detect upon according to Law 182/2000 republished in 2008 and also Law 422/2001 republished in 2006 about archeological protected areas.

    Should there be any other issue not complying with your standards please do inform me and I shall undertake immediate corrective measures.

    Thank you for the heads-up.

    P.S: None of the above depicted items have been found on dead bodies, me and my colleague cooperate with Volksbund in cases of german soldiers found and also with the Hungarian Ministry of Interior which pays us a visit twice a year for helping identifying cemeteries that hold hungarian fallen troops for ID and if necesary relocation.

    Should you need official Refference from both these .orgs please do tell and I shall be more than glad to inform you via PM with the appropriate docs.

    Items above depicted are not harmful in any way, casings displayed are spent and none interfere with any of the regulations and Laws that apply to Metal Detecting in Romania.

    Cheers

    In post #11, last photo. How does the ribbon on the medal survive being buried? It looks to be in pristine condition while the medal itself is not?

    Thanks!

    Of course no fabric could survive burried for so long. The ribbon is a post war model and added for effect. You can see a WW2 original ribbon on the hungarian 1941 Feuerkreuz to the left.
