    The following items came from Goering's "Treasure Train" found in a tunnel in the Obersalzburg by contingents of the 101st Airborne Division. These items were brought back as souvenirs by Colonel Walter Elkins, 101st Airborne.
    The first item is a goblet which was part of a set with Goering's coat of arms. This set was taken by General Maxwell Taylor, 101st Airborne and one given to each of his staff officer's. He had the goblets engraved "Goring's Goblet."Click image for larger version.

    These are nice items as they are the only items in the collection I can use. We bring them out at Christmas and my neighbor and I drink wine from Goering's Goblets!

    Your one lucky man and the envy of this forum and much of the world, Bob! Thanks for sharing these fine items. I was in fact, just reading about such items in that train in a great book entitled, " Nazi Plunder: Great treasure stories of world war II",author:Alford. I wonder how Herr Goering felt when the US Army told him his precious Vermeer painting was in fact a fake! Maybe he already knew , after all, he did give it to Frau Gormanns during his attempted escape. He also commited suicide the day after he found out, though...?

    Excellent Bob, I expect many of us wish we could say we use Goering's silver at Christmas.


    I also expect many of us are slightly green with envy too........
