    Never seen one, but it appears to belong to Schutzmannschaft Bataillon 17 Lettland, (lettische)
    It was formed in December 1941 and merged with Schutzmannschaft Bataillon 25 (lettische) in May 1943.
    Auxillary Police unit. Very unusual.

    As I've not seen one for this unit before I am wary of this one, the abbreviation of Schutzmannschaft spelt without the "c" is a concern. Maybe others have opinions?

    Yes, it's strange. But maybe in Latvia they didn't write the right-german language.....???? I don't know. It's strange.
    They were low-skilled so maybe that is the point ????

    Could be. There's no guarantee that such a unit, even if it was under the command of German officers would necessarily have a German speaker stamping the tags.

    I have seen one other like this that was supposedly good, and it was stamped in a similar crude way. I believe it is correct.
