Nice find! I hope you asked if he/she had anything else in the house!
Did you rifle through the test of the trash bin? I would have!!
Yeah I asked him if he had anything else...he said no, and he found it in the attic. Supposedly a German family lived there before him, so I'm guessing they left it, but the rest was junk.
"Does this happen often that people find such artifacts in others' trash?" lol Just ask Joe (GIZMO8Z) in New York. Take a look at the thread he has-his family runs a recycling center there.

5-6 years ago, found a fired anti tank bazooka tube (probably 60 ~70's) stick out of a garbage bin during garage selling in Canada.
The thing was still in very good condition, that really blew my mind ! Ran into it the right place at the right time.
Nice find! ..the things people throw away...
My friend saw some kids in the 1980's who had pulled a luft paratrooper lid and a "Deuschland Erwake " standard out of a dumpster!
There is in fact quite a few Dumpster/skip Divers here ...
It's surprising what have been found in the depths !!

Thanks for the shout-out, William!
Congrats on saving a piece of history from oblivion, Julekpl!
We had another cool find today at the recycling facility!
