The recent postings about battlefield finds reminded me of some stuff I've got. A few years ago another collector sent me a sampling of items he dug on Okinawa. Thought I'd share the photo with you.

Top row left to right: 1) plug for knee mortar round, 2) ink well, 3) syringe for antifreeze liquid, 4) eye wash bottle (?)

Middle row left to right: 1) 5 buttons, 2) coin, 3) 6.5mm. bullet, 4) .45 bullet

Bottom row: tooth brush (bristle missing)

You know there's a terrific story here, just can't imagine the intensity of it.

Back in the mid-80s, I purchased a small lot like yours from Manions. The most graphic item in the lot was a bunch of molten aluminum coins. Takes no stretch of the imagination to figure out how the melting was induced.

These personal items are always the poignant ones.
