Hi everyone!

New update ... Dug Out Of Ground - found in Old homes.
Findings are very rare and in good conditions.
I will add some pictures what was found.


Rare document which was found at old house. Document is related to Sicherheitspolizei und des SD (Einsatzgruppen)

The "Sicherheitspolizei und SD" was the SS security police in charge of the persecution of the political and racial enemies of the Third Reich.
From 1940 onwards it was also active in occupied territories where especially the Gestapo – the quantitative most important division - became well known for its brutal fight against communism, resistance and Jewry.

Czechoslovakian knife - Bayonet VZ 24 for Mauser

These were used by the Czechoslovakian Army and also exported extensively during the 1920s and 1930s.
VZ–24 bayonets were made by Československá zbrojovka a.s., Brno.

The VZ–24 bayonet represented a compromise between the VZ–23 blade, which was felt too short for use with the short-barreled VZ–24 rifle, and the unwieldy VZ–23 Long bayonet.

These bayonets can be found with both inverted and conventional blade profiles.

The Germans copied the VZ24 rifle and it became the G24t.
G24t was mainly a police rifle.
The G24t are pretty rare guns.

WOW, what amazing finds, especially that coffee pot. I have never seen one like that.

Is it a coincidence that your name is Lett. and in the document, it says Lettland? Is Lett. short for Lettland or am I just thinking too much? I see it at the bottom of the letter as well. Is it your country?

I saw you posted and had to jump on it. Love to see your finds...keep them coming!!!

Would love to see your whole collection, it must be truly amazing.

Hi everyone!

New update 2019 ... January, February, March, April

Since you've been asking where have I been all this time... well, I was here, just very busy with lots of work to do. But I am still here with you. With all the workload I haven't had very much opportunities, but here are some pictures nevertheless.
Latvia is beautiful.
