A GREAT auction day! Lots of great items in one box!

Recommended Posts

I took a chance & drove an hour and a half up to Ephrata, Pa today & picked up a big box of junk at the auction. When I dug through it, I was pleasantly surprised!

 

Not too sure what everything is just yet, as I just dug it out a few minutes ago. I really like the captains bars. They are marked BB&B & have an almost "bullion" pattern to them. Not sure about the grenade...may be French. I can see where someone etched "deactivated" on it & a date...maybe 1943? Looks like a few early cannonballs, unknown DUI marked Robbins, LT bar with a very odd contour, lots of sterling marked pins, and a ton of buttons, pins & misc items. Even got some early arrowheads in the box!

 

Also, a nice 43 dated aircraft flare, German marching compass & unknown armband!

 

Comments always welcome. Most of this stuff will be for trade or sale, except for the flare & grenade. Thanks for looking! post-67213-0-41684100-1416099602.jpg

Right!? I was after the flare, and I thought the grenade was fake, until I got it home & looked at it. I had no idea the other stuff was in the bottom! Also found a 60s Zippo & early Ronson lighter still in the original box with all the paperwork. Looks like it was made yesterday! Still digging!!

Be careful with that flare.

I was thinking about that. It still live, and being that old, I'm sure it's not very stable. Any way to fire it off & keep the casing?

Be careful with that flare.

Also, if I store it in a display case, would it be any different than the WW2 ammo that people have on display? Any risk of it going off, if it sits in a display case & nobody handles it?
