The 25-year-old 105 millimeter
field piece was sold by the post Fri
day for salvage. It was purchased
by Max Fenberg, Legionnaire and
salvage dealer here. Hoisted onto a
big truck, the gun, and four shells,
started on their way back to the
battle fields.
The gun and four shells, none of
them for that particular weapon,
weighed a total of 3,170 pounds,
most of it a pretty good grade of
steel. Legionnaires on hand to see
the gun depart, did a bit of inform

shells or bombs or bullets, that much
metal would make, or as to just
what use eventually would be made
of the thing after it comes out of
the smelter again.
