    Upon a closer look of the capacity mark I think it looks a lot like the one that listed for SPG on the capacity mark website listed in TBSL. I don’t think it was produced by SPG because of the handle and no markings that have been associated with SPG. There is also no mold number and after the exclamation point there is a odd design.

    This is a stein that I posted in a earlier post, “Large Steins 3L and up”. I expected it to have a mark from Girmscheid because of the handle and the capacity mark.

    Ron,
    The first one only has the numbers, the second one is the 1975 Gerz limited (with a different lid), and the third is Gerz mold 213. I just seen that he Gerz two colored version of 213 sold on Ebay a long time ago for $80. I have never sold anything on Ebay or know a good starting point, so I have been hesitate.

    Justin,
    Thank you for the reply.

    Ron, I haven’t been to a convention. I just moved back from Germany, so I have never had the chance. As for a chapter goes, I’ve thought about joining the update NY but their website does not work.

    I was just told that it is a JWR from TBSL. Thank you for the help.

    Ron,

    I am a member of SCI and I enjoy my membership very much. I figured it was one of the two but when I looked in the JWR and the M&R catalogs I couldn’t find the mold number. Once it arrives I will send it into TBSL. I’ll contact Lyn Ayers through the Membership Directory. I guess I never contacted a member through email before, is that an issue or not?

    Lyn,
    Thanks for your reply. I assume it is from Girmscheid because of the handle and the capacity markings. It’s still in the mail (I got it off of Ebay.de), hopefully I will get it before the month is over. I remember as a young PVT stationed in Bamberg we use to visit a bar that had a three liter stein. We use to all take turns drinking out of it while the rest helped old it up .. good times. Germany is a wonderful place.

    I had seen there was a blue one of my stein, which I like more and hope to find.

    Is there a significant reason why the two lids are different on the same stein? I had seen in your article that you own the same one. I didn’t realize that they made so few etched steins. I guess I’m lucky I got the one I did for next to nothing. Your article was a very good read.

    The lid on the one pictured above is of the deer.

    Ron,
    I’m reading it now. When did you write this?

    Justin or Ron,
    A few more questions for you.

    I first looked in the old stein catalogs on here but there seems to not be a AJT one, is there a reason for this? I would assume that none have made it over the years.

    I know that most stein numbers don’t go in any kind of order or relate to a given timeframe of production, is it different with AJT?

    It seems that most of the etched steins came towards the end of the golden era, besides those by V&B. Is it safe to assume that most by M&R, AJT, and others came after 1900 but before 1920? I have a few JWR and Gerz etched steins I have always wondered about as well.

    Like always, thank you for all the help you provided on this website.
