Nice December day in Leningrad front

In Leningrad front there was a snowy December day. The ground was frozen for 2-3 centimeters, but it didn’t stop us from entering the forest we’d been so many times before.deus metaldetector metaldetecting

At the same time, I found what looks like an ordinary standard glass but turned out to be a signal cartridge case, complete with a floral design with “Volkhov” inscribed on it.

A little later my friend radioed that he had found a Soviet cigarette case but in very poor condition. He was a little disappointed, but just a couple minutes later he found a ring with a stone! It turns out that it was a German ring with 800 alloy silver, and the stone was a heliotrope.

This specific area was difficult to walk around due to large amounts of bushes. We don’t think it has seen many diggers before us. We even found a German bayonet-knife K98 from a Mauser rifle after dark!

We also found German cream cans, parts of a German shelter lantern, a comforter, and most interestingly: a huge 19th-century fold. How it got there we will never know!
