Another German dog tag
I have yet another German dog tag that raises some questions about its originality. It appears to be attached to a Flak Replacement unit that was stationed in Denmark during the war. I would like to know wherther it is worth keeping or not?

Thank you very, very much for the info. I was afraid that the dog tag is a modern reproduction, especially now when there are a lot of well done fakes on the market
Unlikely that an ersatz flak unit tag would be faked, but you never can tell!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
