Step back in time with this intricately designed vintage cigarette case issued in 1947 by the Allied Expeditionary Force to soldiers operating in the region post-Potsdam Conference. Notably from the U.S. Occupied zone, this unique piece showcases a detailed depiction of southern Germany on the front. Adding to its vintage allure, the top right corner boasts the motif of the Allied Expeditionary Force while the year ‘1947’ is elegantly engraved into the enamel at the bottom.
While there are some light surface scratches reflecting its historical journey, the wording remains crisp and the various colored dots vibrant. Speckling is also visible, hence we recommend viewing the accompanying photos for a comprehensive look.
