    Looks to be a sweet a$$ EF shell with an EF pattern decal, any shots in color to confirm the authenticity? Thats something I would love to have in my collection! The writing in the interior is the icing on the cake for me!

    Looks like a super SS EF as Samir said, with SS Panzer personalization from the GvB SS PzGr Division! Very cool! Where is it now Hal?
    Cheers

    Thanks Ewan and Samir for your comments. These pics were taken (80's) with a Nikon F3 film camera using Plus X pan (BW) film. There are no color pics available... Best, Hal

    Doug, what's "SS-Schtz"? I always come across that word, but couldn't figure out what its short or stood for.

    It is his rank: SS Schütze. Equates to a Private in the US Army. They also used the rank of SS Mann for Private. The use of Schütze was for the Waffen SS.

    Hi Adrian, I am familiar with SS Schütze, but not SS-Schtz, had no idea they were the same. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Just an abbreviation, like 'Gef' for Gefreiter.
