    Default Help with id disk

    Hello Everyone,

    Although I do not collect German militaria I often pick up the odd piece with other items. Today I bought a small group of badges along with this ID disk at a local fair. Can anyone tell me if it is a genuine ID disk and if so, would it be possible to identify the unit?

    I have seen a posting on the Forum which states that the font should be in a Serif face? If so, this would not be a good indicator of its authenticity!

    Kind regards, Malcolm.

    Hello Malcolm,
    The first thing I see is wear to the cord holes which is a good sign.
    I am not up on units like some here but, from what little I know, this could represent 10 Schule Kompanie, Motorized Jaeger Reg. Grossdeutschland.
    Probably making a fool of myself but, someone will be along to tell you so.
    Ralph.

    Hello Ralph.

    Thank you very much for the kind reply and helpful information – it is greatly appreciated.

    Would this unit be a training school?

    Kind regards, Malcolm.

    That would be 10. Schützenkompanie (motorisiert) Infanterieregiment "Großdeutschland" [10th Rifle Company, (motorized), Infantry Regiment "Großdeutschland"].

    (In German, the capital letter "J" instead of a capital letter "I" in abbreviations like this was used to avoid confusion with a Roman numeral "I".)

    I cannot comment on the tag itself, though.

    This is actually 10 Kompanie Motorised Infantry Regt Gross Deutschland !!

    I like Andreas have not seen a tag such as this before perhaps he could comment on the spelling of Großdeutschland on this EKM ?

    HPL2008 and Paul D.

    Thank you both for your help in this matter.

    As it would appear to have belonged to a soldier in a well known unit, it is probably going to be a fake!

    Kind regards, Malcolm.
