In the late Winter of 09 hundreds of collector cartridges and fuzes were stolen from one of my storage bays in NorthEastern Ohio. The thieves took as many as 50 ammo cans of items in 2 trips. They apparently had a car as they left behind far more than they took. If they had a truck it would have been worse.
The theft included items from the German fuze collection which was recovered by Col. Jarrett at Hillersleben Proving grounds in 1945.
As a result of continued effort on the part of collector Pat Burns of Ohio I have been able to recover about 50 rare items from local auctions.
Much of the material was sold through a series of auctions at a local auction house. He was unable to attend all of the auctions but did save some excellent pieces for me.
There is still plenty more out there and I am always interest in hearing about lots of collector ammo and fuzes sold in the NorthEastern Ohio area.
One of the recovered fuzes has been stolen and recovered twice.
