    I personal don't like the patina and detail. Wait for others.

    Looks like something from home depot hardware section.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Welcome to the forum. First things first- those pictures are far too small to really be anything that can be evaluated properly by anyone who really knows what he's doing; Gestapo warrant discs are faked a lot and the fakes can be quite good, so large, clear, high-resolution photos are vital to any useful examination. The details that one looks for are often quite small you see; it's also necessary to compare letter spacing and alignment, etc. and only large photos are of any help.

    As noted above lettering ,spacing &etc are the key - this looks like a post 45 remake

    The letters are strange - loom at the "T" - it is not vertical... The whole word "Staatspolizei" starts too left.. and the numbers are going "down the hill"! These discs and matching cards were not issued in the field! This is a fake.

    Yeah, they're right- it's not even a good enough fake to need better pictures afterall; looking at real examples from Don Bible's site, it's clear the text is improperly positioned vertically- the term 'Staatspolizei' should be below the suspension ring hole, not in line with it. Definitely bad I'm afraid...

    The swastika on it isn't correct either-it's almost distorted in appearance. Just another of the thousands of fakes made of this disk, unfortunately. If proper, these generally sell in the thousands of dollars range.
