Hi Folks: What is this? Does anyone know what this is? Was it an award...and the numbered?

 

This is a wooden boot on block of wood with 11th ABN Div Patch "ANGELS" with 188th Co. E....and on the bottom "1996"

 

I found two (2) of these....and they look "old"....and my "limited" research showed that the 11th ABN was in Southern Germany...down by Augsburg.

Possibly something done as a place setting for a reuion of E Co. veterans.

 

Looks like a Cowboy boot.

It looks like maybe they might be commemorative reunion placeholders for a dinner table, like they would have one at each guests place at the table.

 

Just a guess....

Hi Folks: I have rec'd two (2) replies from key members of the 11th ABN association and in both cases....they couldn't ID the items but this think the same....an item from a "past" association get-together/meeting. I don't know if there is interest out there for these...but I liked them. Thanks,
