Great pieces. But if the price tags say $9 and $15 then the tags are probably newer. Still great items nonetheless!

The insignia prices are in Marks. The insignia and price tags were all made c. 1945-46.

Which changed again in late 1946 along with designs for paper Marks. The Constab was responsible for transport, movement, and security.

I'd buy that bullion SHAEF patch for a $1.50! Heck, I would give you $3 for it right now.......Nice pick ups and are in great condition. It is amazing how quickly society/economy turns when in a situation like Germany in 1946...whatever sells make it and meet the demand of the occupiers. They made some AMAZING items for US forces immediately after the war. Yours are great, near mint, examples.

Always looking for 325th G.I.R. and WWII USMC items!

It is not SHAEF when it's blue, Its the US Army Europe, or USAEUR in blue, the SHAEF patch is black, and only black. USAEUR is still used today.

Always looking for Items from the 110th Pennsylvania Volunteers 1861-1865
