    Any comments might be helpful in answering the question- anything that looks odd or actually looks good?

    I'll give you a hint- the unit did exist and it's 'written' correctly...

    It's the '33' and 'B'- notice how they're shiny and the unit text is dull? It's a real Panzer Regiment 2 disc- an unissued blank the unit carried for replacing lost discs that some bozo ruined by trying to make it seem issued- ruining a very nice original.

    It is very often the case that the blood group letter style and stamping form (how hard, how well-placed, etc.) does differ than the main text because it seems it done at another time and by another person (presumably the testing was done at a later date than the issue of the disc), and certainly with pre-stamped discs, the variable information (Stammrollennummer and sometimes Kompanie) will also look somewhat different, but in this case the 'age' is very mismatched.

    The position of the number is also rather weird- although there's no actual 'rule', it really shouldn't follow the unit info on the same line like that. Virtually always it's either the line above or below the unit, and only occasionally if, for example, there's further text that crowds things, it may be off to one side- but not as on this disc to be sure.
