    Hi Guys & Gals - sorry for messing with this thread

    I have quite a few shovels - I'll just show my latest ones for now...

    (Astro)-Hungarian (?) - but used in WW2 by both Germans and Hungarians - with winter camo. The marking is: two tri-angles within a circle(?) and "1381" - see pic:

    This one is a mystery shovel with sand-camo(?) - I have a couple of DDR shovels, but they don't look like this - has a fairly long handle - those "bumps" under the paint - I checked - it's not rust, but dried mud/sand...weird.
