    There is the box with just a interesting history. The items itself is not valuable and this box doe'sent make their value higher. If the box will contain a lot of "SS" stuff being faked- then it's a reason to make faked box IMHO

    Boxes with items in very good condition have been found in Estonia too, with not that great items as uniform pieces tough. That's what I've heard atleast... Who knows Some boxes/finds look more probable than others but that's all about luck!

    I would love to think that it was real, but it all looks too new to me.

    I've seen this on Czech site where everybody post their metaldetector finds. Also, you can buy metaldetectors. And that's why I believe this is a set up. No offence, guys.

    I would have had to try to light up at least one of the cigars, just to see how they had aged.

    It appears that ther is some sort of seal on the box, perhaps similiar to the seal on a US ammunition can. That might result in reasonable preservation unless the box were actually immersed in water over a long time. Would be alot of work to fake it and the artifacts presumably have held up to close inspection? That there are things like that out there to be found does not suprise me. Incredibly fortunate find though.

    One must ask himself this, why bury a box like this? When you see the hole the box looks deliberatly buried. Not buried because of shelling or bombing but buried by hand. So why did this soldier bury a box of clothes, rum and cigars? Lets say the war was at an end when this happened, he could then made very good use of the rum and cigars as trading objects or bribes. In a way it wold be like burying a couple of hundred dollars for no reason at all.
    Also why put his dogtag in the box?

    Has the name Gerhard Pouhler been researched?
