This is a Russian Imperial soldiers 1917 pattern shovel which is rare to find as it was only used for the last months of the war on the Eastern front. The head which is missing its wooden handle but does have some original black paintwork remains it is in very nice solid condition it has cleaned up well it is a bit pitted and rusty from being buried but is a nice example and is perfect for display or any collection. The shovel head was recovered from Poland on the late war battlefield of 1917 just before the war ended.A very nice relic from this famous Eastern front battlefield.
