Is this a SS "Der Führer" Erkennungsmarke ??
Just got this Erkennungsmarke, marked "SS - DF".
Is this a DER FÜHRER ID - Mark?
It came broken, but for display reasons joined the two parts togheter, don´t worry, as its reversible.
ANY comments on this one would be most appreciated, as i an completely ignorant on this ID-topic, therefore i come to the EXPERTS !!!
I got this mark from Latvia, for in case that fact it´s useful...
Is it SS?
Is it a Der Führer Mark?
What do all the numbers mean?

Why not? Unfortunately your comment says very little. On what is it based?
The entire disk is stamped with the same stamp set, a bad sign on such a highly sought after disk. I don't like it either, I would want to know the provenance before I bought it.
That looks as if it was stamped a week ago!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
This one wouldn't be for me either , i don't like the font , very high number for a Kompanie etc

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

dammit.. i feel that i might have made a not so good deal this time...
The tag itself looks like a poorly made replacement, the holes are neither big enough to hold the cord, nor do they look worn. In fact they look freshly drilled and the edges are crisp and not dulled as once might expect for an item of 70 years plus.
As already said, the stampings themselves look too fresh. Not a good once I'm afraid.
Don't like it either, I'm afraid. Font looks wrong, stampings look fresh and crisp, so does the entire tag itself... shoddily aged. All bad news --- seems unanimous.
Font is off and was it soldered together? almost looks like JB Weld for a bond... No thanks. A big time Fake
