WW2 Military Relic Hunting in Estonia
Then more interesting relics, such as buttons and an aluminum container, began to appear - this suggested that whoever metal detected here, they used nothing but a deep-seeker which would pick up only targets of a size larger than a beer can. The military relic hunters were looking for weapons.

WW2 German Aluminum Container
A friend of mine Thorsten in Bavaria helped me in identification of this aluminum container. In his e-mail he wrote:
"I think the inscription of the aluminum container reads "Günther & Haussner AG, Chemnitz." Chemnitz is a city in Saxonia in Eastern Germany. A chemical company Günther & Haussner AG existed until 1948."
"Günther & Haussner A. G. Chemnitz"
A pile of large iron finds was left by the military diggers near the foundation. I could imagine how much sweat they broke digging up every "big" signal. And the amount of remaining smaller junk targets was still endless.
A Pile of Dug Iron Junk
I did not want to "disable" myself by digging a zillion of splinters, bolts and screws, so I looked around again and spotted a nice metal detecting spot - under the branches of firs, which blocked the sunlight coming down to the ground, thus preventing the grass from growing.
That was the rightmost decision made. The first signal I got was a coin-like one. Finally I dug up a coin!
Copper Coin Found
The coin was not in great condition, but I could see its design and determine that it was a coin minted in Finland.
