i bought it from a guy who said he had had it for the last 20-30 years.
i'm pretty new in the collecting game, and got absolut no idea on how to spot fake dogtags.
does anybody know where it is from?
and if it's real (which i doubt) what would the price on such be?

I don't see anything wrong with it; the unit existed, the one-piece stamp is nice, the Stammrollennummer is believable and the age looks realistic. Maybe an active SS buyer will have an idea of a price they'd pay...
Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
This one is fine , tag for the replacement and training unit of the Estonian Waffen SS Divison !!

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

I have seen prices for similar disks in the 100 to 200 euro range "Ausb.u.Ers.Batl" of SS without SS it is more like a 15 euro disk.
Thanks a lot, guys. I bought it on impulse for only 60 euros, so i was a little worried it might have been a fake.
Nice to get it confirmed that it's real
