The Debica disk is pretty common and probably fine. The other disk is quite rare and unusual. I like it in general because the unit existed but I am not able to see the stamping very good in this image. It looks like it might be stamped over the corrosion. In some spots in the image the strike of the stamp looks new so it is difficult to tell if it is OK.
Moin, I can connect me. The Debica is perfectly ok.
Latvians brand I have not seen so well nch.
My "15" is otherwise canceled.
I didn't notice any stamping over corrosion on the second disc. There is some corrosion in stamped areas... but I didn't note any under the stamping.
If it were my money I would buy it based on the photo.
I like the second disc especially.
Thank you for the opinions guys. My source has always been a good one and I had little reason to doubt.
Can anyone post another example of the second tag ??

Courage the greater as our strength faileth.

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

Take a look at the 2013 thread this came from, I suspect your Stamm kompanie disk is not 100% original.
So is the image your showing is original? Why does it make this one not original? The disks look to be from different units, One is a brigade and the other a Abt..
