    This is a American soldiers M43 shovel which is complete even with its wooden handle.The shovel has no maker markings that can be seen but the screw still works so the shovel folds and unfolds it is still a very solid semi- relic at worst which has been very well cleaned and still has lots of original colour .The shovel head is rusty and pitted but no thick heavy rust it is not braking up or falling apart it has been very well preserved even the wooden handle has original colour and is perfect for display or any collection.This shovel was found many years ago in the Ardennes Forest area in Belgium from the winter of 1944 during Hitlers last great offensive in the West.The shovel has been in a local private collection for years now available for the first time since the war outside Belgium.
