"I think it's possibly a mix of genuine and fake stuff put in the box so they can try to sell the fakes for big bucks as 'genuine,'" one user wrote.

“If this is true then it makes you wonder what else is still out there to be found and hope the guys managed to return the belongings to the soldiers family,” another viewer commented.
