Excavating old battle fields is an EXTRAORDINARILY dangerous hobby. There are huge areas in France that have have been fenced off for more then 80 years and no one dares set foot into them. To do so is pretty much guaranteeing a fast death. The government EOD crews all through Europe dig up and blow up 1000s of tons of old ordnance every year. France alone also averages about 35 farmers per year killed while plowing their fields from hitting old ordnance. You can't even clear out the fields; cold weather just keeps pushing more stuff to the surface with every winter.

That if you clean it up would be a pretty kick ass paperweight.

Here's a question. Say your over in Europe on vacation and manage to find one of these while metal detecting. How do you get it home?

R, just R

Mail it in peices I guess. Alternately, go to monaco, buy a yacht, and drive it home yourself.

This would be the most economical of options. I could just see Bubba now with his 6' aluminum john boat and trolling motor pulling into port.
