    I believe its an Ersatz unit disc.

    The LAH stamp is very similar to my LAH field unit example

    I don't see anything fishy about it myself- it might be worth confirming if there was a 5. Ersatz Kompanie, but I expect there was. And you're right- the lettering sure appears to either be the same or very, very similar; the numbers are not, but they're certainly a realistic Erkennungsmarke font.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    All of these discs was found in the POW camps or the areas where the war was ended, seems soldiers just drop/brake them, may be as act to never return to the trench hell
