    When he said it was from a Vet's estate, perhaps the Vet was a digger and found this tag himself years later. When he died, his collection could have been sold off. Not all diggers are 18 years old....And not all Vet's are from WWII...anyone who is an ex-serviceman is a Vet. The digger could have been a Vet from a couple years ago.

    Hi Bulge44,

    in the Belgium ardens, I think the chance of finding there something is very small, a lot of diggers go to there and on alot of those places are now factory's build, even this famous picture is taken at a crossroad, I have been there recently and all the tree's there are gone, there are factory's , some are lucky and find here and know something, but when you whant to do some real digging and hoping to find something, the best chances are in the Hurtgenwald, wich whas the American sector, or in the Reichswald, wich whas the English sector. Even where I live, there is still alot to find and not even 15 minutes driving from where I live is Zondereigen, where a great tank battle whas fought and where even todat Fj relics are being found.
    Greetings, Simon

    I agree. I emailed the seller, but he never got back to me. Guess he was more interested in the sale than what he was selling. As long as it appears to be real, that's my main concern. Thanks for the input.
