    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.

      Agree about the Museum but think there juust has to be some...I know I find out about things I didn't know about in my area all the time..

      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.
