I just bought a 1963 (I think ) german mess kit and a 1942 mess tray :) I’ll post pics when I get them in the mail hopefully June 1st.
I’m also hoping to travel to Poland and Germany soon and going to hit up some antique shops there. I’ll post my finds.

Keep in mind, "all" WW2 related "things" got erased in Germany to get rid of our history :wink:
Antique shops overe here sale anything - except WW2 memoria.
You will find several on Ebay.de, for incredible prices...

Yea you’re totally right. I’ve checked out ones in Poland though and you can find some pretty cool world war 2 items. I live in California and there’s a pretty cool antique shop in my town that I can’t wait to open back up. Something about being in there and touching something old is awesome, idk. P.s. I love eBay haha. I’ve been able to find lots of stuff I’m looking for, but that shipping sometimes. Yikes

Can you get in trouble for selling items from the third reich in Germany?

Only when they have a Swastika on. It´s a "prohibited symbol".
