    Thats what I thought, for the price of $250 LOL.

    Now how would you decipher this tag? 2 SS? 222?

    It's typical- it takes real expertise to recognize good from bad when it comes to Erkennungsmarken, and most sellers have nowhere near enough; there are SO many fake SS discs- like 99:1 bad:good- that it's too easy to pick up a piece of junk without knowing it if you're not careful. They look old and real enough afterall...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Yeap....So why the "2 SS"? whats that for if its the 500th SS FALL JAG? Also I take it the "222" is the soldier in the units NUMBER?

    An Arabic numeral at the start usually refers to a Kompanie or Batterie- the smallest major unit type; then the main unit- usually a Regiment or Abteilung for a field unit or a Bataillon or Abteilung for an Ersatz unit, sometimes a Regiment there too though. So this is supposed to be 2. Kompanie, SS-Fallschirmjäger-Regiment 500. Yes 222 is supposed to be the man's Stammrollennummer.

    Ahhh thanks, I wasn't to sure and I was thinking; " How can the 500th SS para Bn, be apart of the 2nd SS Div"....

    Thanks for making it very clear, now I will know atleast the basics next time I come across one.

    Please ... I wish some information about this Dog Tag, a Fake version is excluded ... but apparently it's something special with this tag?
    I posted 2 photos with the tag, one is in the initial state and the 2nd picture is her bag and Tag cleaned.

    Thank you!

    Hi Peewee,

    Unfortunately, I don't see anything particularly special except for the writing on the Brustbeutel- perhaps the man's name and ? It appears to be Sütterlin script so you'd have to find someone who can read it, or look it up and try to translate it. I can't find any real information about the unit- other than it's listed as once having been stationed in Bordeaux, France.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    I have some information on this unit ... is about a Flak unit that has operated in West more specifically in the French region , other information received indicates that the flak-unit has ordered some of the missile launch pad V1/2. Anyway is a Flak unit ... i think !

    for me ... particularly and interesting is that ID-Tag that you can not identify easy ... or find too little information about it ... here comes the challenge to find necessary information!

    Actually, no; 'Fl. Rgt.' is 'Flieger-Regiment', not 'Flak-Regiment'- 'Flak' is always written out fully since it's an abbreviation already. That's perhaps why someone suggested it was special, but it's incorrect. If it were a Flak-Regiment, it wouldn't be '14. Kompanie', it would be '14. Batterie' too.

    I understand ... now looking for clear information about the ID-Tag ... when I have more opinions will conclude ... Your opinion seems correct anyway! Thank you!
