Nice spot,Glenn! So, it's basically a kind of souvenir/trophy momento of the guy's combat service! Interesting!

Everything appears to be ground dug.
"Currently looking for period items relating to the German city of Amberg."
Considering the number of grenades manufactured and detonated over the TR period there must be a gazillion of these ring pulls around the place. I have about 6 and that's without even trying to collect them, diggers often include them with purchases as bonuses.
Thank you very much Glenn; yeah it was so weird for me but now I got it.
