    Default German tank stug IV found in the swamp in Russia

    That is an excellent preserved tank, which is now placed as a walkaway at the Saratov town, interesting that when it was found the number was 20 now is 21, probably the paint is down.
    Unfortunately that extremelly rare item will be soon just a scrap

    This are very old photos, if I`m not mistaken. And this Stug was buried in mud earlier to make more money on "good condition". This info was on the Russian diggers` site www.trizna.ru.

    Hard to say with my knowledge of English, but I`ll try.
    Some ppl found/bought this Stug, repaired it and put in the soil and some day they "accidentally" found Stug in a good shape. All that was done to sell Stug with higher price.

    Too bad Jacques Littlefield isn't still around and kicking, he might snap that up in a hurry. (Then again, he already had a StuG III.)

    That having been said, it has value and if the owners shopped around I'm sure they would be able sell it. I can't believe some collector won't pick it up. It would probably go for at least $75,000.

    ´´It would probably go for at least $75,000. ´´
    i think it would go higher, as its in almost perfect condition in outside.
    old stug hulks with bullet holes in them have been sold for over 125k.

    75.000$ ? One of my business partners is selling his paintings drawn by hitler for 40.000,- euro each and some things from Eva Braun for 80.000,-...
