    Not the oldest items in my collection, that would be a bracelett fron the early bronze age, but this is also pretty old; I found these artifacts yesterday, near a Roman military outpost. They are a Roman bronze fibula, and some Roman tiles and and a large piece of a amphora. Going back down there tomorrow!

    You can call some archaeologists to pick up those items
    you can also donate your finds into a museum!

    Difficult to date accurately but my 2 canteen rings (one found in SS positions in North Karelia) are thought to date from the late 1920s, possibly with a Freikorps connection.

    I think they are SS related, as much seen ( may be 6-7 of them) all the battlefield found in SS positions, mostly first 3 divisions which was SS-VT. May be such a kind of SS fashion in pre war years
