Since I left the forest on Saturday after finding the "Eismeer" box lid, I had a nagging feeling I should have searched a bit more. I knew there was about half meter of one of the edges of the pit I hadn`t checked too well so I just had to get back there. After morning coffee I found my gear and the car keys and headed back out there. I found the spot and removed the branches from the small unchecked section. I dug underneath a birch root and tadaaam, a small item fell out and it was exactly what I had hoped for, it felt unreal but I saw it had engravings and that it probably was the part I needed and when I got some water on it and rubbed of some of the dirt I was all smiles and laughs. Before I was done I also found a coulpe of bottles, a Göffel and a small bakelite box. Now I was sure I had got all treasures from this dumping pit so I covered it back up and step over into the next pit I had waiting. This one was about the same size but it was far easier to dig as it was no roots going under the moss, but full of broken bottles. I kept at it for some hours, making sure to check everything this time and I made a little pile of relics to bring home. I found two coins, one Finnish and strangely enough a Greek coin from 1926! I really wonder how that ended up in a Northern Norwegian forest. I picked up another leather pouch for the Erkennungsmarken, but ofcourse no EKM was to be found in this dumping pit either. A few nice bottles, a Luftwaffe spoon, some ampoules and a silver shotglass with a cross engraved was saved from the soil before I could stretch my back and refill the pit. I spent another hour walking around in the forest eating berries and locating a few more dumping pits which I ll dig another day.
