    It's much the same way a coin-collector evaluates an ancient coin, of which fakes abound as well...Research/Study is the key...

    Hi Matt,
    This one came into my hands not to long ago.
    Same unit as the one you show but even a much higher role number, 3101.
    What if the person kept his number from his incorporation unit?
    Or this one was made by the same person who made the one you show.

    Regards,
    Steven

    Matt L unfortunately doesn't post here anymore Steven.

    In regard to your tag, I would say it is another fake. I have never heard of a soldier carrying over his original stammrollen number into his eventual field unit.

    This is a fake. Yes it was possible for a soldier to still hold his ekm from his first unit, but very often a new tag was given when he changed units.

    This is one example of several he is attempting to flog to the unwary. All the other ones appear to be produced in the same way with computer etched text. None are original.
