Comments: Montana trays are tough to come across and there are some pretty serious collectors up there that don't like to let them out of the state. Fortunately, I latched on to this one. Funny I had only seen one of these before I bid on this one (2nd one I had seen) and the same day I bid on it I found one just as nice at the Blue and Gray show. Guess which one was cheaper? You got it, I paid more for the one I was bidding on. Oh well, it goes both ways doesn't it? It is a nice tray, which displays very well. It does not photograph very well however. "Die Deutschen Tranken Immer Noch Eins Ehe Sie Gingen" means "The Germans always have one more before they go. ?" Too funny and certainly not appropriate in the days of the designated driver. Special thanks to Jim P., a Montana collector, for the translation.
