    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

    Thanks Paul, they are not mine, a seller is offering them, thought they would be nice ones, since this seller, as far as I am concerned always offers good authentic quality

    Apologies i wasn't clear before , the Regiment originally existed but was not part of the 15th Latvian Division when it was formed on 22nd Oct 1943 from the Latvian Legion , it had already been renumbered 34 at that time so a EKM from Lettische SS-Freiwilligen Regiment Nr. 5 would not have markings to the Regiment as part of the Division !!

    Thanks for that, so, just to wrap things up, these two discs in your opinión are not good, are they?, I would like to explain to the seller, since he is selling them as 100% original

    These are not original. The physical characteristics of the disk are wrong and the stamping is wrong for the unit. The stamping on the 10th company disk has "LeTt" That is just a faker being cute the only reason there would ever be stamping like that is because one of the upper case or lower case letters were missing to have it next to each other is a sure sign of an ignorant faker. The patina on the other disk is knocked off around the hyphen, and in other places the SS runes are struck wrong. It is just new stamping on an old disk in both cases and you can see it if you look close. Look at the back and front of the 10th company where the crack is and you see the / stops abruptly at the new crack it is also sloppy after the crack. The person who stamped it probably broke the disk when they placed that slash making that fresh crack.

    Why does your seller have so many low roll number unused stock of different companies that are all stamped similarly but not the same? (same stamp sets different letter positions) it looks really fishy. This last one is is out of focus and is more difficult to see. This one has some characteristics that are bad too in the disk itself. Also when combined with the other two I would stay away from all of them.
