I'm not expert on these but it looks original to me...
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
Hello! I think it looks good! I found these pictures of another 25 on the net.
Cool, yep looks similar - thanks guys!
yes cross that started the thread is a good one (the 2nd too of course). Sometimes we can find "25s" that have soft details on dates, very slim.
Another charateristic of some of them is this paint, pretty matt and fragile but nice, in this case the last touch was applied when cross was already assemblied, for this reason there are traces on frame.
Fabri is correct about the fragile paint, here is my marked '25' !
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
Interesting characteristics about the dates and the paint - great to learn these details, this forum is excellent, guys!
