Does anyone have information about a paperweight that was made form the barrel of a German 88? The one I saw was issued to the 495th.

one at Museum was given to 134th ORD MAIN. BN.
Has Battle of Germany on it and a sign with Heidenheim, Germany below it.

also an unmarked one at Museum.
These may have been given to Occupation units at Heidenheim.
