    Here are some of the souvenirs my Grandfather brought home from his time with the 7th Armored Division. He was with them from St. Vith through the conquest of Germany. I have one more pic to upload.

    Really nice, I have a passport from the first world war from Germany, there was another one in this guys collection that was only 10 euro but my mom said that I could spend only 70 euro and I was saving up to buy a medal, and unfortunatly for me I did not spend my last 45 euro on an Iron cross for 40 euro...I bought a civil award given to mothers who had 8 or more children instead called die deutschen mutter.

    Here's the photo of my current WW2 collection.

    Top row: US Army shovel (US WOOD 1944).
    Middle row: German bayonet for K98. Too bad the numbers on blade and a case don't match.
    Down row: Yugoslav Medal for bravery (my great-grandpa's), Yugoslav Order for merits for the people (also my great-grandpa's), Yugoslav Order for bravery, German Medal for war merits with a reproduction ribbon and a German small ribbon bar.
