Default Totenkopf Steins

Here are two Imperial totenkopf beer steins - not the usual 'student' type which sits on the 'Gaudeamus' book.

First is from Hussar Rgt. 17 - with hussar thumb mount.

Yowzers! Those are not "beginner" Bierkrug. Hmm....I keep seeing your postings Robin; HR17 Busby, Leib Hussar caps, Totenkopf plates, but I cannot figure out what your main interest is?

Really rare and big dollars. There is one on ebay.de which is up to over 500 euros already and still days to go before the auction. I saw one on Gary Kirchner's site that sold for over $2k.

Nice steins. Unfortunately, they are a bit out of my price range.. Thank you for sharing them Robin.

Very, very nice Robin. I do not recall ever having seen this IR 92 stein before. Some years ago (back when I went to them), I had an opportunity to buy a Hussar 17 at a MAX Show; but I foolishly walked around awhile to think about it, and of course, by the time I decided to go for it, it was gone.

Question. Did both of these regiments not also have the more traditional style design steins as well?

Congratulations and best wishes,

Wild Card

A real rarity - a Mettlach stein to a TK unit.
All Mettlach military steins are the same with differences only in the transfer and impressed lid design.
