    If this tag was real then it would refer to SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 7 which was the only 7 designated unit to serve with the Polizei Division when it became a Panzere Grenadier unit , fortunately the faker didn't understand that and went for Pz Rgt 7 !!

    The Division only had a Panzer Abt designated 4 !!

    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

    Yup, it's bad for a bunch of reasons- Paul and Glenn hit on a couple of them: the unit is all wrong (in a few ways), and the font is one shown in the "Important! Common Fake Fonts- CHECK HERE FIRST IF YOU HAVE A DISC TO ASK ABOUT" sticky thread at the beginning of the section.

    Unfortunately, very, very few militaria dealers know discs well enough to spot fakes, and even fewer antiques dealers do; I doubt the place that sold it had any idea. Glad it didn't cost much.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
