I've been collecting military steins for many years but have never heard them referenced as "officer", or "enlisted" steins, unless the stein was personalized with a mans rank & name. These steins were available commercially and could be purchased by anyone who wanted to spend the money on one, Steins with lids are more desireable but those without are very collectable also.

Great pieces shown here!

Nice. I havent seen that one before. I am guessing the provisional ones are mid to late 50s as the rosters I have are structured that way. The Striegel stein may be a little bit earlier as I have a photo of Herb Brucker with one from 54-55 time frame.

Unfortunately no.

 

I bought this back in the early 80's before it really mattered about getting names with everything. Collector's were more concerned with items.

 

It walked in to a friends shop in Fayetteville and all he could remember was that it was one of the first few guys to the right of the sign.

Lots of the old 10th groupers were "original manifest" SF.

Many were recruited amongst Europeans under the Lodge Act.

Some were real pro's.

Many were still in service during my time. They were all nationalities and backgrounds.

Old E8 on my 1st team in VN was a former Luftwaffe Flakhilfer.

I met French resistance guys, Foreign Legion vets, and Chzec Freedom fighters.

One guy who had jumped into Dien Bien Phu with the last volunteers.

Great honor to have known and served with such guys.

The 10th Group in Germany had a long and interesting history.

I belong to a SF discussion group where this stuff gets tossed about every day.

A couple of "Original Manifest" guys in residence. Not many left.
