    Nice fobs Horst. I'm confused by the WWII fob. So was that bought by German soldiers who had served in Paris and transfered somewhere else? Hence for a soldier to remember their time Paris. Why would they limit it to just 1941? Alot of questions I know, I'll stop now.

    Hi Horst, nice items.

    Hi Jay, I suspect these Paris souvenir watch fobs might have been made for additional years?

    Cheers, Ade.
