    SS-Artillerie-Ersatz-Regiment would be my guess?
    Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!

    Nick here is mine forn the same Batterie for comparison , this is the Artillerie Ersatz Regiment , this one was found on the positions of the SS Sturmbrigade Langemarck in Estonia !!

    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Nice one Paul ! Thanks for showing!

    Any particular reason why one would have runes and another SS ?

    Quite a difference in the issue numbers so possibly a new set of stamps were being used i'm sure Matt will have more to add to the question !

    Paul's quite right that given the significant time difference between the issuing of the two discs, it's possible the stamp set was changed; unfortunately though, everything, including the 'Waffen-SS' on the back is different, so it's hard to say anything for sure about the first disc. It has no obvious problems, but that's all.

    The same as Paul's tag with big number and big "Nirostal"like holes shown here SS Erkennungsmarken and next in this thread are the same as thread starter, even the same companie halftag, just 40 numbers difference. Also a couple of other diffirent tags from the same unit.

    Oh brilliant Dimas- your 10. Batterie disc's font looks the same to me; note how the R has a very short loop, and a long front 'leg' that's not quite as long as the straight vertical line, for example. Interestingly, the one you posted from the 11. Batterie, Nr. 373, has a font that looks very much like that of the one in question too.
