    Hi, I picked up this ornate, pewter wall hanger of Heidelberg. I am not sure if this is pre, post or during WW2. It is a very nice heavy and about 14 1/2 inch in diameter. I was told it was brought back from a vet when he was stationed in Germany.
    Also, if I could get a translation, it would be greatly appreciated.

    "Alt Heidelberg
    du Feine
    Du Stadt
    an Ehren reich
    Am Neckar
    und am Rheine
    Kein an`dre
    Komt dir gleich"

    "Old Heidelberg (City)
    You fine
    You City
    rich of honor
    at the Neckar (river)
    and at the Rhine (river too)
    No other
    is like you"

    The text says:

    "Alt Heidelberg, du feine,
    du Stadt an Ehren reich,
    am Neckar und am Rheine,
    kein' and're kommt dir gleich.
    "

    ...meaning:

    "Old Heidelberg, you fine one,
    you city rich with honors,
    by the Neckar and the Rhine,
    none other is your equal.
    "

    It's a souvenir piece. I cannot comment on age.
