    Erkennungsmarken weren't made with 'official' or 'standard issue' stamps- there was no distinction between civilian and Erkennungsmarke-appropriate stamps. Only some official blood group letter sets were ever issued, which is why one sees the same letter type/style sometimes, but with respect to the regular text, it's always different and thus the stamp sets perhaps even made locally for each unit...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Here's a real set of stamps and the die to hold the blank dog tag. Note that there's stamps for the blood type and rh+ and rh-. From my collection.Attachment 412718

    If there are Rh factor stamps, it's not a set for German Erkennungsmarken because it wasn't in use during WWII. Its activity in human blood was only first recognized in 1939/1940 and it wasn't incorporated into blood transfusion systems until after the war.
