You are ordering this German, cold war era (Between 1948 and 1957), beer stein. Was made to order as a souvenir by CPL Robert E. MacCarrick of the 6th ACR (Armored Cavalry Regiment) stationed in Straubing, Germnay who's name is painted near the base.
Face art is the vibrant DIU (Distinctive Unit Insignia) of the 6th Regimental Combat Team / Fighting 6th, Now the 6th Cavalry Regiment. Unit motto is "Ducit Amor Patriae" or "Led by Love of Country". Side art features crests for Straubing and Bayern. Nude silhouette lithophane on the base, NOTE: it is cracked but holding together.
Cracks do not show when displayed. "George's Gift-Shop Landshut Outside the Main Gate" and an illegible, painted signature. Hoping this makes it way back to the unit historian, someone with connections to the soldier or soldiers family, or to a military stein collector who will preserve it for generations to come.Historical significance with the present day movement of armor in and out of the region.
