Displaced Person's "D. P. INDEX CARD" "G 09727674", Card printed by the U. S. Government Printing Office(GPO)
Very early DP form as it is number One

 Items came together in an old clear-sleeve for displaying for Identification

High-Quality Printed patch on heavyweight white twill cloth, knife might be a Mauser Bayonet, uncommon maker's trait is the broken blue trim line.
Anyone know a maker that printed a "trim-line" on their patches?
Patch could be a WWII unit the DP had served in?

"Landesverband d. Saalinhaberi Sachsen." hallmarked "G.H. OSANG DRESDEN", Used......inquire
- - - -
translation and partial History
 "Landesverband der Saalinhaber i(n) Sachsen" = Union of businessmen running beer/dance halls in the German State of Saxony
note: This association in Saxony was one of the largest catering-trade-associatons of Germany in the Kaiserreich.
Kaiserreich means: the stick-pin is from circa 1900-1918.
 The star of David signifies the Jewish section of this association.
Until 1918 Jewish citizens had been held in high regard for their knowledge in running businesses.
In 1919 things changed because many Germans (before Hitler came to power) blamed the lost  war on the Jews.
In the following years of the Weimar Republic until 1933 Jews didn't show up with signs like the Star of David to avoid provocation.
 G. H. Osang is the name of the entrepreneur who manufactured the stick-pin in Dresden (Capitol city of the State of Saxony).
 Gold and Black stripes with Crown in bend (running from viewer's top-left  to bottom-right) are the Heraldic Coat of Arms for the State of Saxony with origins circa 1200 AD.
