    Default Erkennungsmarken for civilian ???????

    Hi

    I buy a litlle lot this afternoon and there was two erkennungsmarken, I buy them for 20 euro
    I take a little risk with them
    The seller said that these erkennungsmarken were for nobes or chapelins, I really don't know if it's true

    what do you think about them ?

    thanks for your help

    Not convinced, however by coincidence found both names on a USA genealogy website. The items both look unworn a not of great age. There is nothing on either tag to imply the owners were Chaplains or religion related.

    Here is another example. There were quite a few of these for civilians.

    Probably a good idea as a civilian if there was fear of being bombed to bits in order to identify a body.

    Glenn, first I though the same but then metal detectorists would find much more such ID tags... And my half is issued to Marianne Kaschik from Aussig, Sudetenland which is Czech town Usti nad Labem. Her mother Anita was from Prague, our capital. Czechoslovakia was fortunately not very much bombed by allies... So I suspect such miltary ID tags were issued only to some "prominent" persons??

    Maybe 'semi-military' staff like civilian helpers perhaps?

    I know they were used for "relocated" persons and normal civilian workers. The one I have came from Russia close to Stalingrad and was picked up by a detector. I am not sure why citizens would be out in the occupied areas or who they were exactly but they must have been doing some job for the administration or the army.

    No problem with this half or Eikes, but the lack of wear and font on Pegase tags concerns me.
