    Good Evening Everyone.......

    Back from saleing and going to a few flea markets again this weekend.....

    On to France on Monday......

    Thought I would share with you my finds.......

    1)  Occupation Money, Mint and Uncirculated - Germany  (Understand this is fairly common)

    3)  A couple of unopened packages of Cigarettes from the 1940's - The Netherlands, thought that these were not that common as the seller only had one on display and after I bought it he pulled out 5 more packages but then again the two packages for 7 and a half Euros I will not complain.....

    Back home.....

    Yes there is still a certain amount of WW2 items to be had but you have to look.....

    There were a number of flea markets and saw a number German items and one person had a number of WW2 German helmets but at a good price.....

    I have a few Friends in the NL and visit them when I go over. They all relic hunt and some of the finds are something else.
    I have some Para clips attached to camo parachute material, given to me as a gift.
    I am told next time I visit a few of them will take me relic hunting and everything they find that day will be given to me.

    When I go to Europe I drive to Normandy, then Flanders, up to the NL then back through the Somme, as I go in late May, the farmers are plowing the fields, in the WW1 areas you can find tons of stuff in the fields.
    I have a lot I have mailed home or just brought back with me
