    Very interesting the JR14 tag, I never knew they had embossed tags, I would have called fake on that one. Similarly the SS-VT, I expect the verfugungstruppe to be a single stamp as per my own example but it seems that isn't a hard and fast rule. You learn something every day!
    Yup, these Totenkopf units were the only ones to use this odd embossing marking and there are a couple of variations. They're very distinctive, and so odd compared to any other Erkennungsmarken, it's understandable that the automatic response would be that they can't be real

    And there are lots of variations to the SS-VT mark; the one you posted Glenn is a typical nice one, but they could be individual letters, and even just simply 'SS-V.T.'. One should always remember the difficulty of logistics and supply- the single, dedicated stamp isn't something just some guy at a bench can use, so they'd have to be industrially produced; that means supply can't be consistent and the need for discs will always be pretty great, meaning alternatives are automatically going to be necessary.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
