A Panzer is the main feature today, an amateur photo of rare tracks - the Sdkfz 140/1 Aufklärungspanzer 38 (t)

With 68 vehicles produced in 1943-44, only a handfull of photos exist of this recon panzer...and most of these were taken for documentation at the production plant or show damaged vehicles after capture.

With the emergence of E-bay and similar websites, treasures like this - a private photo taken by a Wehrmacht soldier, are available to collectors and WWII enthusiasts who sometimes bid from a collective pool of money, to make sure they are the highest bidders and get the most precious items.

This 9 X 6 cm original photo sold for 489 Euros.
