I found in the attic of an old house very interesting mug.
Signature on the bottom: G. WIENINGER SEN. MUNCHEN 50.
Just like the picture on the bottom right side (the link) http://www.steinmarks.co.uk/pages/pv.asp?p=stein278
Beuthen (BYTOM) is a city located in Silesia in POLAND.
I do not know what was used. I do not know when it was manufactured. What could be the value of this item?.
PLEASE ALL INFORMATION.
* I don't remember the inscription. I made photos quickly and not exactly..
* I can not do better pictures at the moment. Mug is in my second home, I forgot to take

Yours does have some problems....worse is the lid- it appears to me missing a "top disc/inlay" and has some heavy dings- plus the lettering appears badly faded (Some idiot put this in the Dish Washer!)....however, it is to "Polizei Abteilung Beuthen" which makes it alittle scarcer than some.... I can't see enough details to say if it's real 100% (They do fake as well as "alter" old mugs into 3rd Reich versions)...
Assuming it's 100% original "as is"......I'd estimate it's value around $200./250.00, which is the low end of the scale for these....they run from $200.00 to $650.00 for most examples....though some can go MUCH HIGHER!
IMO, pricewise...of course!
