Wonderful circa 1919 WWI Occupation Period .900 silver United States 3rd Army German-made souvenir powder compact. The lid features an enameled emblem in black with a red circle showing a letter “A” in the center. Inside, the compact still contains its original powder puff and the inner side of the lid shows mostly indecipherable silver marks – looks like .900 silver and a maker’s mark.

8- (Very Fine—Excellent): The compact shows minor to moderate wear and tarnish, nearly all the enamel details remain intact showing a couple of blemishes that do not detract much, original powder puff intact, overall excellent condition.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
