Hello to all.
I thank you all for the answers, you have given me a great help and I give back the EKM to the seller who will give me a refund.
I believed that the erkennungsmarke was good just because the seller is a company very important and very serious. But I also know that the EKM of elite military units are very risky and I had not found other EKM to make comparisons.
I also have some difficulties with the language.

Sorry Paul, did not mean to throw shade on your plan!
In the interest of knowledge are we to assume that the tag presented in new member Paatis' link is a fake also?
Funny thing that linked image, it is roll number 858 and this disk is 863, but they found a set of SS rune stamps in between the stamping. I would be more concerned about them after seeing that. one of them is likely fake or both.
I would be leaning towards both disks being suspect. Apart from the 'SS' font, the rest of the stamps appear identical...very odd. In this business anything odd should be steered away from IMO.
Here is a comparison of both disks for posterity.
Not the "SS" runes are the point. The letters are equally wrong.
The overall picture I do not like for both brands.
The known me, 100% original brand names of different.
As you can see, the counterfeiting workshop is inventive!
