It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

Hey, nice find. There's quite a collectible market, if I'm not mistaken, for WWII relics with nazi emblems on them. It might have some value.
Oh, and I think that ebay has some sort of ban though (unfortunately) on nazi memorabilia. There was a lot of buying and selling years ago of collectibles (badges, accoutraments, buckles, etc... of that period) going on in the past. But apparently some politically correct folk complained that there were skin-heads or some such promotion of insensitivity, or ..... for some reason, you may not be able to sell in that venue.
Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!

When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro....
Nice find! I'd be hunting every inch of that place. I'd especially be looking for any kind of trash dump from the war years......
