    Looks good to me...I remember finding one still complete with the carrier in a wood-shed in Germany when I was 13 years old...

    update: I just won this for 62 EU...'hope it looks as good as on the photos.
    So now I have my very first German WW2 shovel!

    I know what you all will say: "Now go get an original carrier!" ( which will cost triple the price of this )

    Man that is the truth or even more that is why mine are coverless! may go with some of the good repo ones just to have a cover and they display good IMO At the Front sells the best ones. timothy

    Now, go get an original carrier !!!

    Ahhhh you knew I was going to say that !!!..... I know they are expensive, but IMHO you will regret buying repro's... just wait until a complete one shows up... To be honest, I think it will be very difficult to get a loose carrier, it is more likely that you will find a complete set, but you can always use this one to put this one in a belt, there are a pictures of soldiers wearing these in the way a hand-grenade would be carried....
