Announcing: A New Publication
The Mettlach Regimentals


Longtime SCI member Peter Meinl­schmidt (supported by his wife) has published a new book (German DIN A 4, 80 pp, spiral bound) entitled The Mettlach Regimentals of the 2140 Production Series. This consolidated work, the first significant attempt to treat with the numerous steins in this series, includes more than 170 color photos along with brief descriptive information for each unit. Additional sections provide historical details about the production of these steins and their lid types, and an overview of the organizational background of the German Imperial Army, including a list of the former garrison towns and their present-day locations. This publication fills a knowledge gap for Mettlach and Regimentals collectors alike, and is deserving of a space on every collector’s bookshelf. Priced at 30 euros, which includes packing and shipping to the USA, it can be ordered directly by emailing pmeinl@gmx.de and making payment through PayPal.
