You should ask Lett. He is a whiz at identifying war relics.....

Grate furnace. From a large firebox - boiler room, bakery. Installed in the furnace for several pieces.

How very cool it would have been if it ad been part of the armor off a Panzer Tank.
But, being ID'd as a furnace part doesn't diminish its value as a sensational find a single bit.
A single shield cent, found in a field the size of Texas is a sensational find for the reason no other than someone lost it, and I, using my skill and metal detecting equipment, found it.

My finds includes old (?), well rusty and grody, anyway, bearing races and horse shoes which may be 100's of years, or 100's of hours old. Every find is sensational because , as in this case, had it been a whole Panzer Tank, rather than part of a furnace, you'd have still found it.

Great find relicturww2 and great ID Vadim (UA)….Happy hunting and thanks for the post!
