  3. I have serious doubts about that stamp originality. This paper is type of the punch card, they were meant to be machine processable. That stamp would seriously prevent that. https://sites.google.com/site/calculatinghistory/home/an-early-it-disaster https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postcheque-_en_Girodienst And card itself...very well preserved for ww2 era. This one is from 1975. Compare.

  5. At least third item from the end is Russian origin. It has inscription "освешение кабины", this is switchboard to turn on the cabin or cockpit lighting. From right of it there's another switch, its label starts with "A", but is unreadable. Maybe gentle cleaning reveals the text?
  6. Hello, If anyone can identify these details, I would be very grateful.. .. I believe they belongs either an airplane or a tanker, but for which ones? 🤷‍♂️ Thanks in advance !

    Don't like your women with a mustache? Search for others like it and see if they all have the 'stache' I would think not but who knows.

    Ribbon bars and bits.

    Nice ribbon bars Rich. The May Day tinnie with the child, I don't think I have ever seen a great example of that one. Must have been one really bad batch of zinc went into that one.

    Some junk. Pz , Ostvolk, EK1 2008.

    2008 EK is kind of cool. Just a fake and not one of the sample batch that was made up? They could have done a little better job on masking the beading.

    German helmet m35 ET64 and m40 ET66

    I have to go with Rich on this , as far as i no there is only one SS helmet with that number, and it is one of DougB but it has the big runes and it is still in his collection and its a very rare helmet and those ones you have I think may be replicas plus the other helmet with the full interiar , they are the ones you can buy online or at any fair and are fake

    Eureka!!! Figured it out!! The handle comes off the pick head and the handle is carried in the two loops vertically! Good thing it wasn't a snake! I'd be a dead man!! Thanks for your help Richard!! Ron out!

    French or American in style? Would not say German. Best Rich
  16. Certainly interesting modification with some sort of covert purpose? Perhaps insurgent use, easy to conceal but with hard hitting rifle cartridge still? Rich
  17. Nice Coal Miners diary, looks like recipe notes or such like, just a guess, putting 2 and 2 together. Rich

  22. Looks like someone has been playing with wax on scrap paper? Have you found anything about the unit on Lexicon der Wehrmacht? Rich

    German helmet m35 ET64 and m40 ET66

    I would buy them as re-enactor helmets? Not a lot of money. Best Rich

    What is this for?

    Your welcome, I have never seen this before but you may be correct it does not look too comfortable to wear.
  26. R Southerland

    What is this for?

    Thanks Richard!!! Seems obvious now, and I have the entrenching tool too! Don't know if I would have ever put the two together myself, but now I don't have to ,thanks to you. Seems awkward, with the handle horizontal instead of vertical. I guess the handle would beat your leg up bouncing around ,and take up too much room at the waist area if hung vertically. And what about the other loop? As you've probably already guessed, I'm not ex military.
