You are bidding on a beer stein presented to Anheuser-Busch employees when they achieved 25 consecutive years of service without an accident or injury. The stein is APPROX 13 inches high and has the green cross safety insignia on it. At the top is the year 1988 in gold leaf and the employee's name also in gold leaf. It COMES WITH a letter that is pictured and it reads: "When Anheuser-Busch began brewing beer in the mid-1800's, the company had few employees. As a result, personal achievement was easily shared with one's fellow workers. Anheuser-Busch is now the largest producer of beer in the world and employs thousands of people coast to coast. But the importance of individual achievement is still recognized. Today you are being honored for your outstanding safety record. This custom-designed, monogrammed beer stein is awarded to you with our sincere congratulations in recognition of your diligence and personal achievement." 3 flaw on bottom which can't be seen when sitting.
