    Damn, where did You get it ?
    While in Poland—several years ago. I have a number of "P" patches.

    I collect, therefore I am.

    Polish forced worker metal identity card for Fabrik Herzberg Gmbh. Quite unusual as the card is overstamped with the Polish forced worker <P> symbol.

    The company WWII Fabrik Herzberg Gmbh which made metal sheet products still exists and is called Mage Herzberg Gmbh a large multi-national headquatered in Herzberg, Germany and still making metal products!

    And most unusual, he is wearing a Mampe "Halb und Halb" elephant charm!

    How fascinating to learn—I always thought it was a bear

    The photo studio portrait is marked:

    Photo Ruth
    Bahnhostr. 5
    Buchloe

    Which is near(ish) to Munich. I wonder if C. Mampe had a factory in Munich as well as Berlin?

    Was the Mampe "Halb und Halb" elephant charm you spotted a advertsing piece?
