Amazing haul! I used to spend a lot of time in Luxembourg, visiting a friend who lived in a farm above Ettelbruck. The woods behind the farm were filled with shallow rifle pits, probably dug by the Americans during the war.

Here, unfortunatelly, I got a collectors license and they don't let me buy anything unless I can prove in what battle they were used

A very nice find, you are lucky as Carles mentioned about different Country laws! Also the half track wheels look good

Nice haul! the red tip GI 30cal in the ammo cans is tracer, the black is armor piercing.
Nice mix of US and German items, guess both sides used that barn and bailed out of there fast.
Some of those magazines are even still loaded.
Thanks for sharing,
I am happy for you.
Eric
