German soldiers army issue barbed wire cutters they are in relic but solid condition rusty but not braking up or crumbling they have rusted solid and have been left in as found condition with some dirt still attached .The wire cutters were recovered from the battlefield at the Seelow Heights in 1945 the opening battle for Berlin.A very nice relic from this famous battlefield so late on in the war.
This battle is often incorporated into the Battle of the Oder-Neisse. The Seelow Heights was where some of the most bitter fighting in the overall battle took place, but it was only one of several crossing points along the Oder and Neisse rivers where the Soviets attacked. The Battle of the Oder-Neisse was itself only the opening phase of the Battle of Berlin.
The result was the encirclement of the German 9th Army and the Battle of Halbe.
