2.Fahrschwadron 300 - supply unit from 4.SS Polizei Division?
I would like opinions on this disk I am told it is 2.Fahrschwadron 300 - supply unit from 4.SS Polizei Division is that correct?
I am also told this other disk is a "custom offizer from Konigsberg" let me know what you think.

I lean out of the window. I am used to "Rad Fahr" . There was a supply unit 300, SS Pol.Div. The need of supplies for a division, is transported in freight cars and trucks. Who is reading, how many freight cars of ammunition in a day "big fight" for a division were consumed, they rethink by bike replenishment. And finally, if you can add the word SS to an item, it´s getting much more interessting.
Not military tags, are written shorter. There is no need to have to parts, a financial official was never active a soldier ore close to fightings.
The first time I just read about a tag like this in 15 years and I can´t find Zollgrenzschutz Ostpreußen/Königsberg.
Well right at the beginning in 1939 the SS-Polizei-Division is listed as having Versorgungstruppen 300 (but no longer in 1943 when it became the 4. SS-Polizei Panzer-Grenadier-Division), but as is usually pointed out, SS units generally have 'SS' as part of the title, and this disc has no 'SS' at all anywhere. So it seems like it's a regular Heer unit in truth; the only possibility I've found is:
Kommandeur der Divisions-Nachschubtruppen 513
* 1944 bei Armee-Abteilung Narwa mit einer Kraftfahr-Kompanie und zwei Fahrschwadronen;
Versorgungs-Regiment 513 seit 1.9.1944.
300. Division z. b. V., Heeresgruppe Nord
Fahrschwadronen are specifically mentioned, and perhaps the 300 comes from the 300. Division z.b.V?
And the other is simply border control/security/customs, yes; a very nicely made disc but indeed not military. With a roll nearing 5000, there were a lot of people in that department over time...
Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
