    Here is one of the last German die's I still have in the collection.
    Not sure it is WWII, the die form makes me think it could be WWI....
    Just never knew for what purpose it was made! Clearly a number had to be add to every item wearing thise ID tag, but on what was it put on??
    I am pretty sure it is not to be put on a weapon or vehicle, it has to do with money and a association .....
    Was it a tag for spoils of war....?
    cheers

    So Wiznitz is a place in Roumania and was part of Germany before and during WW I.
    They might have had a saving bank by that name, but what was the tag for, is the question that remains.
    Thanks for the link!

    Yes, a kind of credit institute - you need to be a member - sometimes usual here in germany.

    I think the die that you have is to emboss/stamp documents/contracts.

    Possible, but then there must be a counter die and why was the thise die still in a factory that made metal embossed items....
    Still more questions to be filled in!
    Thanks for your input!
