    Default WWII US dog tags

    Hello everyone:
    Dog tag I have these in my collection:

    Lowell l. Yeryar: (poor print,slightly magnetic)

    Robert F. Kuck: (Officer,slightly magnetic)

    Arthur J. Gilbert: (brass material)

    Romeo Chagnon: (slightly magnetic)


    All the names I have found on the website NARA - AAD - Main Page, but have not found the name of Robert F Kuck, I think on this website are not the names of Officers.....
    How can you differentiate between a true or false Dog Tag? There are many reproductions on the market....
    If there is any problem with these Dog Tag, please let me know
    Thanks and regards

    I don't particularly collect dog tags, but I think a good way to find if they are orig is to check the national archive and find out what these guys did.

    I don't collect them either, I have my Father's who is a WW2 vet and they are aluminum. Early tags in 1941 added life saving info such as (T+Date or T43) for date of tetnous shot and blood type and were made of a combination of copper and nickel. They also had the name and address of the next of kin contact info.

    As the war progressed, mid-war 1943, switched to stainless steel and late 1943 dropped the next of kin info. Aluminum are typically encountered very late war.

    BTW, a fire at the St. Louis Records Center in the 70s destroyed a large ammount of WW2 reocords. It can complicate records research efforts.

    Staff Sergeant Lowell L. Yeryar served with Company C, 274th Infantry Regiment, 70th Infantry Division in the ETO.

    I am slowly putting together a collection of dog tags to represent every division, and I still need a 70th ID tag, so if you still kick around this forum, let me know if you would sell it.
