I bet he picked it up while on occupation duty in 1919, since this is the sort of discharge souvenir that would have stayed at home, hung on a wall.

Reservist R?ter served in the 4th Battery of Field Artillery Regiment 23 1910-1912.

These--like regimental steins-- have been heavily faked for decades so it's nice to have a real old one! :cheers:

Thanks Rick! I really like it a lot too. The shoulder strap is a nice touch!

I had no idea that these were faked! Are they rare and highly desired these days?

Is there any known history on the specific unit? I would be great to know where it was toward the end of the war as well as any other tid bits of information.
