    Welcome to the forum and the section Steve Those are some nice discs- but I'm afraid I have some bad news: unfortunately, the Panzer one is a fake.

    You can see in my composite of your photo below that the letters match a known fake type (the inset examples)- particularly clear are the 'R' and 'S' but the other letters match as well.

    Notice how all your good discs are serif fonts- it's quite rare to find an original Erkennungsmarke that's all capitals and a sans-serif font, but fakes are quite often that type of lettering. All sans-serif capitals should always raise a red flag.
