Beer Steins

In keeping with the Featured Stein for February, we point out several articles about this popular area of collecting. The commonly used term for these steins is “Regimentals,” even though collectors include branches of the Imperial military where that term is not technically accurate (perhaps most obviously, the Navy). These steins were purchased by members of the military as souvenirs of their training period, as they returned to civilian life, as Reservists. The last article in this list discusses the Cold War analog to Imperial German Reservist steins. These articles, and more, can be found in the READING area.
