    Cool *Live Hand Grenade....and more! -- WW2 Relics Germany

    I recently did some relic hunting in eastern Germany right along the border to Poland. There are many old army foxholes around the forest so I decided to buy a metal detector. I ordered a Garrett Ace 150 from Amazon and had it delivered to my Mother in Laws house. I would never have imagined how many WW2 relics are just lying around. Is it safe to be digging this stuff up? Probably not. But I had fun anyway. I think I'll try coin shooting around the ol' farm house next time if the farmer lets me!

    Those are some cool finds, but did you contact the EOD to dispose of those properly? Just because it's been outside for 70+ years they are still dangerous. Lots of WWII non-lethal relics still to be found though.
