    Hi All.

    I shot photos only of the lid of this stein since my question relates to the content of the engraving on the lid. I'm hoping someone can help me to:

    1. Fully decipher the engraving since I'm finiding it somewhat challenging to recognize some of the letters. My rough translation leads me to believe this was a wedding gift.
    2. If you have access to SA records and have data on this member I'd like to know more about him. His name is in the engraving as well as the numbers 46/12.


    As a side question, if you are familiar with steins, I also included a shot (the last one in the sequence) of what appears to be the number "1" followed by a small upper case "T" stamped into the side of the rim near the handle. This was done before the stein was fired. I'm hoping to understand what (if anything) that stamp may signify.

    I think the 46 stands for SA-Standarte 46, Wolfenbüttel.

    Your beside question.
    It is "1 L" L stands for Liter.

    "N. Sturm 46/12" = "Nachrichtensturm 46 / SA-Standarte 12".

    It's a wedding gift presented by said signals unit to its member Rottenführer Georg Köchel.

    Thanks for the great feedback everyone! I assume there are no documents available on Rottenführer Georg Köchel? What about his signals unit? It would be awesome to get more of the history of this SA member, but I understand it simply may not exist if he wasn't anyone significant.
