    Tag looks good to me

    Its hard to fake zink ones as they would break when stamped post war.If unit can be ID'd it stands a good chance of being original and of considerable value.I don't collect SS as there are many fakes but i'm sure some other experts on the forum can help you

    Hi Tom, to me it is a bit of a red flag.

    I don't collect tags and I consider myself a complete novice where these are concerned.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Not uncommon for SS Tags to have no bloodgroup on them , many of them do not , so that isn't a problem, this was due to the fact the SS had the blood group tattoo on their arm.

    Can you post a more front on photo ? I'm not sure about the unit designation , why it says Btl then after that has I ? which is a designation for a Btl but would be used at the front of the unit designation not the end ??

    I'm no expert either Ade

    Seem's like it could be real.I take it the T is for Totenkopf as they were the 3rd SS i think? Paul has solved the blood group mystery so thats a bonus. Would the JE stand for Inf. Ers. and would the I after Btl mean the 1st?
    Not sure but its an interesting topic so keep em coming
