    Hi Bill

    PM sent. The farmhouse was called Neihaff and was reached from Ingeldorf. At the time, early/mid 90s, it was rented by a friend from Iowa, contracting for the EU. Herr Stumpfer was the farm owner - if my memory serves me correctly.

    Would his name be Jean Muller? I too spent many years visiting friends in Luxembourg and found many barn finds along with searching the battlefields.

Two friends of mine on the Luxembourg EOD were recently killed handling a defused U.S. Artillery shell that they were getting ready to transport for disposal.

    It is a ZB26/30 magazine - like 99.99% of all the "supposed" FG magazines ever found

    So, do you have any background information about your barn find of the ammo, mags, etc.? Is this grouping the result of immediate post-war informal gathering of battlefield relics in the local area where the barn is located, or was this a conscious effort to put together some sort of collection? Any idea as to the time frame in which the gathering activities took place? How long as the stuff been sitting in the barn?


    Just curious about the details

    This is quite something…….the mags still loaded since the war, sitting in a barn. Not bad.

    We find Things here as well, but not in a barn anymore. Just imagine, those People sitting on hundreds of rounds for 70+ years now…...
