    Correct designation is SS Panzer Grenadier Regt 3 " Deutschland "

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    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

    Paul,
    So it would read SS Pz.Gren.Rgt.3"Deutschland" ?
    Thanks

    No, he was just correcting the formal unit title- an Erkennungsmarke from the unit would read something like 3.K. (E) SS ,,D'' and then the serial number (with that exact punctuation, the 'SS' as Sigrunen not just capital SS). That's the text from one original- you could technically use 1. or 2. or 4. instead of the 3. since there were multiple Ersatz Kompanien. It'd likely have Waffen-SS on the reverse. If you guy is an Alte Hase and had been with the unit since its early days, he might have a disc that read 7./SS. D. and then a serial number (low) with SS-VT or SS-Verfügungstruppe on the back- again with that exact punctuation, Sigrunen not capital SS, and you can choose any Kompanie number from 1. to 12. probably if you don't like 7.; 4., 8., and 12., were MG Kompanien, the others rifle Kompanien. That's for back when it was a Regiment alone before combining in Das Reich.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Sure thing. And be a pal and mark 'repro' someplace on it too- just because you intend it for reenacting doesn't mean that somewhere down the road someone might mistake it for real or decide to try to pass it off as such...

    Sure. So the serial number on the same line after the "D" or would it be on top ?

    All one line in both cases- blood group letter just goes anywhere (other than on that line that is)
