Group of various relics obtained by an American soldier while on duty serving in the American Secor of Berlin in the 1970s. A rather oddball collection includes: German WWII M-31 field canteen, some wear; 48-star American flag, individually sewn stars and stripes; East German gas mask container containing a Russian-made gas mask and cannister; Bundeswehr black belt and buckle, size 100; brass Russian Navy belt buckle and black belt; Soviet and DDR lapel pins; WWII Luftwaffe belt buckle (worn), a silverprint photo, about 2 1/2" x 5", showing a German pioneer soldier of World War I full-length and identified, with full pack, the soldier's 1984 pass through the East/West Berlin checkpoints, and other ephemera. A nice selection that should be viewed.
