    Default Some random tags?!

    Guys,

    I have been struggling to take photos of these, I see now it is best done in natural light without flash.

    No doubt some duffers among them as this is not really my main interest.

    Matt I have struggled also with some of the civil abreviations, maybe you have a better idea?

    More to follow got to go and fetch my nipper.

    WOW JOCK!!!

    That'll keep him busy!! Seriously though, i wasn't aware of these civilian tags. Where they issued to factory workers or others too? Is the purpose of them for i.d. in case their place of work was bombed and they became casulties?

    Cheers, Ned.

    Ned,

    I think they are military type offices or linked to the war effort some how and would therfore be on allied target lists? So I would guess that you are right in that it would be for casuaty ID. I have no idea what they all are?! I hope Matt can crack a few.

    Cheers jock!
    That sure was a fair amount of tags.
    Since you say tags is not your main interest, how come you have so many?
    Are they aquired within Germany, or from other sources?
    Thanks for showing us.

    Best regards

    There no civil abbreviatures. Just some of them is non combatant tags, as a W B K- Wehr Besitz Kommando, instrumental Park, and other Heeres Beamter, Bau, and Tech troops tags, but they are even rare than a combat

    That's a nice little collection you have there Jock- I don't see any 'duffers' at all- some are really quite neat actually like the 'Radf. z. Inf. Rgt.', and the one with the complete word 'Stammbatterie' and the pointilistic blood group letters- all uncommon and interesting. The original neck cords are nice too- rather difficult to find in general. The black and white one is cool- a holdover from WWI when the state colours were used by various Regiments- black and white is Prussian, for example.

    Guys,

    Thats about a quarter of them, I will post the rest over the week end.

    They have been picked up in Germany over about 21 years service most very cheep, the most ever was the Pioneer tag last week at €12. These used to be around DM 3-5 which was a quid - quid and a half. They were not that popular in the 80s so I would always pick them up since back then I had less income. With Ebay they seem to have become more popular.

    Wow- a pound... I'd have been in heaven- and broke all the time LOL Cheapest I ever got a disc for was about $12USD and more often $15-$20, not counting the odd time I was the only bidder on ebaY.de and got something for 8 or 9 Euros- and that is certainly no more.
