Doubtful German Dog-Tag
I repost this German ID tag hoping that i could find an answer regarding its authenticity. Is it a modern fake or an authentic piece? The person that sold it to me said that he had bought the tag in a Flea Market in Nurnberg. It appears to be inscribed N.E.A. (Nachrichten Ersatz Abteilung). It is quite an insignifiant unit and it might not worth to fake a dog-tag, but I haven't seen yet something similar. The carving of the letters also looks strange
In waiting for your answer I thank you very much

It looks fine to me, an original period piece in my opinion. Check how the stamping is covered by the decay instead of on top of it.
Perfectly OK. This one has been stamped using two sets. Probably the Abteilung stamped a whole bunch of tags, then the company details and bloodgroup was filled out when it was issued.
Seems to me that a lot of these N.E.A tags have very straight forward/not very stylized fonts. Looks good to me as well.
