The next meeting will be April 22nd in Camarillo. Our host is a knowledgeable collector of Kaiser period German militaria dating from the mid-19th century through World War I. We should learn a lot about the Pickelhaube. Members should receive their invitation in mid March.
Erste Gruppe was the first group formed within Stein Collectors International. From our creation in 1967, the chapter has included a diverse group of collectors of beer steins and related items.

February 2017 Stein Sale Frenzy

Beer Steins
Some steins offered at the meeting. Click bottom of picture of this link Stein Photos to see more. (Note: Link may open slowly.)

Stein sales at the February meeting were very lively, as expected, with our hosts making their entire collection of steins and related items available for sale. While socializing with beer, wine, and snacks, members and guests were permitted to pick any steins they were interested in buying, take them to a Master Steinologist for evaluation, and then negotiate a sale price with the hosts. A number of members left the meeting with boxes of steins and other collectibles.

The hosts then soothed our thinned wallets with a Mexican buffet and we concluded with a brief business meeting.
