1911
Germany: WW2 1941 DATED BEER OR WINE BOTTLE WITH WEHRMACHT STAMP. Interesting item of history from WW2. Green-blue glass bottle approx the size and shape of a standard wine bottle. Fade label now a light brown/tan colour. All the details of the maker, his coat of arms, the date (1941) is still clearly visible. Label indicated that the maker was "Georg Schmitt's vineyard and wine estates Nierstein on the Rhine". Faint ink eagle and swastika stamp still visible, indicating that this item was most likely issued from stores, possibly as a personal ration. Large chip to the bottom of the bottle that does not detract from display. Not something we often see for sale. Would make a fine display item with some personal items of the WW2 German soldier. Grade II-
