Finnish entrenching tool and carrier used by the Wehrmacht
I received this entrenching tool and carrier. Both the shovel and the carrier are marked SA which I believe means that it is of Finnish origin. However, the carrier has a Nazi eagle stamp on it. Any ideas as to whether this is a Finnish entrenching tool and carrier used by the Germans or just a carrier which has had a fake Nazi stamp added post war?

Brian that stamp is not anything that i've saw on field gear before, but maybe others have. The carrier and shovel are not WW2 German issue so I would think someone has added the stamp postwar. Just my opinion tho.
The shovel and cover are Finnish army ww2 used ,the eagle looks post war added to help sell the item
Thanks for the help guys.
Agreed, the eagle has been added post war.
