168th Engineer Battalion Bowling Ashtray 1961/1962 Plankenhammer Floss Bavaria Germany
This small ashtray features a bowling ball & pins in the center, with the words "168th Engr. Bn." and "1961 1962 Germany" . This is apparently referring to the U.S. Army 168th Engineer Battalion. It also has gold trim around the edges and in the corners where a cigarette would sit. The maker's mark is "Plankenhammer Floss Bavaria Germany". There is a chip on one side of the ashtray (which can be seen in the photo), but otherwise it is in fair condition with very little paint/glaze loss or crazing.
