    Here is a nice addition to my shovel collection.
    Real M1874 e-tools are rare and almost impossible to find in such great condition.

    Manufacturer: AWS = Artilleriewerkstatt Spandau, 37 = workers number
    Unit marking: Ersatz Bataillon 77 (not sure wich one exactly)

    Another cracking find, Austrian, and the unit marking is a little cherry on the top!
    Fabulous.

    Thank you, Kohima!
    Unit markings were very common on the M1874.
    I would say about one in two has one, perhaps even a little more often.
    Later on M1898 shovels are almost never unit markings to find.

    Very nice. Wonderful condition!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thanks for your comments!

    As reference you can find the same AWS marking from worker no. 10 on a brass here: 7,7cm leichte Feld Kanone (l.F.K.) 96 n/A 1st production Cartridge Casing

    PS: Worker no. 11 at AWS also produced shovels. Got such one too.
