    This is the second Beer Stein that my husband had that I am trying to find out about. His father bought it back from the second world war. More than that I do not know! The German helmet on the lid must be somewhat unusual. Any information would be appreciated.

      What does the writing on the lid say?
    3. Chrisnp Chrisnp, 6 years ago
      The helmet on the lid was known as a raupenhelm (caterpillar helmet). It was unique to the Bavarian Army and worn from the 1860s through the 1880s. The blue and white shield on the stein is also Bavarian

      This stein was manufactured by the Merkelbach & Wick. The mark shown was used from about 1879 - 1921.
