Found in a village in western Hungary. Historical evidence shows that the 5th Panzer Division Wiking had lost 2 Panthers in that particular village in early 1945.
It can be said with high certainty that this piece was lost in 1945 during the Lake Balaton Offensive known as Operation Spring Awakening. The men of the 5th Panzer Division Wiking were sent to the region to help Oberstgruppenführer Sepp Dietrich's 6th Panzer Army in their final attempt to change the course of war. This piece is a quiet memento of the Last Stand in the East.
You mind, it was designed to move a 45 tons tank. For this reason USA or other overseas will be expensive. 25-50 dollars depending on distance from Hungary. UK or Spain 50 dollars, Austria or Germany 25 dollars. The item "WWII Original German Tank Panzer V Panther Jagdpanther Track Link Waffen Elite" is in sale since Sunday, May 21, 2017.
