    Hi,

    that one was found in eastern France, near the city of Metz. It has only been de-dusted as I don't like mint, de-rusted or varnished stuff. Just love them as found...

    Nice Score, friend! Lots of action around Metz in 1944, as I'm sure you already know...

    looks to be an EF / Fulda produced M40 with a HJ&K decal.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
