Let’s start this with a question – do you think there could be a lockbox from WWII out there still, packed full of awesome loot, or is this a fake? Right now, no one knows.
Supposedly discovered with the aid of a metal detector on an old Russian battlefield, a series of pictures document the digging up and opening of the box. The contents, if genuine, are just a treasure trove of awesome memorabilia, propaganda and booze from the time. It appears to have belonged to a German soldier who had a penchant for contraband.
1: Pulled from an old Russian battlefield, it certainly looks legit.
2: Everything inside is pristine.
3: Reishmarks were the currency during the Nazi regime.
4: Dude was in a hurry to cram some clothes in here.
5: Looks like you could still smoke these.
6: And another box. At least we know what this soldier's hobby was.
7: What's the point of smoking if you can't have a drink. But man, those bottles sure look perfect.
8: More Nazi gear. Hopefully someone can confirm this as real or a hoax soon.
So, amateur historians and internet skeptics, what's your call? Real deal or BS?
