I bought these at auction, a set of 8 saucers and 8 - 9 inch plates but not matched dates, I believe these were made wartime at different factories in Germany and around other countries under German occupation, these are the first 4 emblems on the bottom of these plates, what are they worth? any ideas? I collect WWII stuff, any and all :) I think these should be in a WWII museum, very rare items. Just for thought: the Indians had this symbol to represent the 4 seasons but it was not tilted, it was straight, the Germans tilted it and made it what it is today, sorry if these pieces offend anyone but I'm just a collector of history :)

    I don't know how much they are worth, but they remind me of the motion picture "American Beauty". Great find.

    I would like to know what the other sides look like also. Are these the only ones you have? I found a site that has similar ones but not with the exact makers that you have. They went for $50 to $100 each. You never know, they could go for more depending on how rare the stamp is.
