Re: From FEB WWII Campsite Italy OD cans

Flea market was not so good for OD beer cans, but nice for other stuffs.

Only one OD Schaefer can, Cheddar ration can and Petrolatum. Also very nice corn cardboard still sealed and full of 24 cans but I think I will not cook anything with this corn :lol:

Re: From FEB WWII Campsite Italy OD cans

Thanks to all for informations and comments. I think this cardboard did not reach Italy before the war, maybe not shipped. Usually all supplies arrived to Tuscany from Leighorn ( Livorno ) harbor, captured only during summer 1944.

@Cap-Sealed I remember your request but not so easy; I know only 2 OD Grain Belt cans, one is mine and another one in a private collection... I tried to trade but not so easy....

Re: Cleaning the area

Generally I do not like to sell them ( you are diggers and you know ;) .... ) but when I have many cans of the same Brand, I can sell them. Hamms, for example, I have only 2 ( 1 relic and 1 from estate ) and I do not want to sell; Old topper I have 7 ( 5 relic and 2 from estate ) and I can sell one....

Re: One of the best dump

Thanks Conehead for the information but the steel is damage and for me "crash" meaning that the metal acts as the chips!

Probably it happens because the soils are different sometimes with water and some other with clay.
