    The adavantage with a lid like this Glenn is that you have the history of what happened in the location that it was found , you have some nice items and they are far from modest !!

    1st July 1916

    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

    I've just been emailed by my mail forwarding people that a little package is on its way to me from Russia with a couple more SS trinkets

    I won't spoil the surprise until they arrive and I get some nice photos but in the meantime, here's a couple more SS relics i've bought since this thread was started.

    What I think is a divisional badge or volunteers badge for the same unit. Or maybe it's a Norwegian party member or youth party member badge?

    My Russian package just arrived!

    Mystery item #1: Ferdinand Wagner Schirmutze Adler

    I just love it! For me it's just the right level of saltiness. Not mangled or unrecognisable, just a nice amount of patina and the missing/broken pins only speak to me of its history.

    I believe the Wagners are considered somewhat rare amongst cap eagle manufacturers and there is some controversy over the 'closed' v 'open' 9 on the '39' in addition to the traditional German 'slashed 7' as opposed to a regular font '7'. Some maintain the open 9/slash 7 versions are fakes whereas just as many maintain they are merely a variant.

    Fortunately this example is a regular 7/closed 9 so I'm comfortable with it, even if I didn't know the digger and already have Ade's thumbs up!

    Hope your job situation has improved/will improve.
    For one who has reluctantly 'joined the dark side' and started collecting SS relics, I think you did pretty well.
    As others have mentioned, you are far too modest.
