    Default German Id discs question

    Hi Ade, this may be out of the thread, but I do not think that far off. I found these tags for sale. Are any of them good you think??

    I gave up on the SS tags. If this need to be moved, go ahead, but thought while all the experts are talking tags, thought I would show these also.

    If the ones with the neck strings are real, what do they say? I would like to have one of those. In fact, If they are all real, what do they say, if you know?

    Regards, Steve

    Steve,

    The first one at the top from a Flak replacement unit is a good one in my eyes, if you want one with the cord and it is priced okay, I would buy it!

    Can't make the others out too good, but will try and enlarge the pics.

    Cheers,

    Grant

    Hi Grant, thank you. The tags are all on auction, so do not know what they will really go for.

    Right now the 4 are at $22 for the set of 4, the other 2 w/ strings are $30-40 ea., 4 days left to go.

    I like Dogs and most animals, (no cats) so the Vet tag would be nice to have, Maybe have my Schnauzer could sport it around on occasion. Actually, any one if cheap will be nice.

    Regards, Steve

    Hello Paul!! Thanks again. Your quick with all my novice questions about these items out of my area or expertise of gun and grenade collecting. Very helpful, Thank you. I am learning rapidly.


    I like all of them if orig. The ones with cords are nice. But I guess I could use a piece of some original trip cord/twine from a pioneer/engineers S-Mine kit box, and put a cord on any one I decide to get for display. Nice to have to orig cord, but.....

    I had, and sold the S-mine box, but kept a couple bundles of the trip cord, and some other parts from it. The cord looks about the same, and I have two different types. The hemp, and the cotton variety.

    Regards, Steve

    Hi Steve,

    The one with the string on the right i would certainly be wanting a better photo to see what unit it is before spending money on it , the same with the other one that can't be read as it looks to have some score marks on it to line up the stamp as does the Vet tag !!

    Like everything else tags which go for big money are Waffen SS , Fallschirmjager or other well known combat units, followed by the sort of tags on offer here. The FLAK is worth no more than $30 in my opinion and the four together not much more,

    regards

    Personally im very sceptical about ground dug ID-tags. Its too hard to analyze the details on those and well, they should be very common so why bother. Have one original Finnish dogtag in my collection and I think Im satisfied with that one

    In my experience original cords are quite uncommon, and to answer the question about the type of metal making any difference, the answer usually is no- it's the unit and condition, not whether the disc is aluminum or zinc. Stainless steel may be the exception for some since it's fairly uncommon and may be considered worth more if one is simply interested in an example to go with the usual zinc and aluminum.

    And it's probably too late for the auction question, but I didn't have any issues with any of those discs, save that none is a particularly 'interesting' unit per se, thus the values shouldn't be terribly high.
