There were two different steins manufactured for the 1983 convention. The first was a half-liter stein, provided to all convention attendees, which featured a cowboy boot lid figurine and a “six-shooter” thumblift, along with side images of the Alamo, site of the well-known 1836 battle for Texas independence from Mexico, and a Nine-Banded Armadillo (not shown), the Texas state mammal.
The second (below left), produced in an edition only twenty-five, was a two-liter stein with a Texas star serving as the central decoration, side images similar to those on the half-liter version, and a lid decorated with the same pewter six-shooter that served as the thumblift on the smaller stein. This stein was given to the event’s organizers and various special guests at the convention.
