At least twelve different transfer decorations are known to carry the number 1502. The version at the right honors the alliance between Germany and Austria-Hungary during the First World War, and is sometimes seen with a line of text around the base commemorating Christmas 1915. Other steins in the series depict German and Austrian military figures, sometimes with a name below the picture and sometimes without. In addition to those shown below, depicted figures include: von Bülow; von Hindenburg; von Hötzendorf; von Mackensen; Franz Josef; Wilhelm I; Crown Prince Wilhelm; and Crown Prince Rupprecht.
