    Yes, the broken one is an intermediate-design WWI disc- large oval, with break slits but no bottom hole. The unit is 1. Kompanie, Infanterie-Regiment 50 and 44 was the man's roll number. The soldier's name and home town are on the obverse with his birthdate.

    The other one I believe is 5. Kompanie Luftschütz-Rekrutenkommando Mühldorf. THey both look real to me.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Nice one Springer! Good to see you have some original and interesting items after the recent fake issue. I trust these examples will complement your collection nicely.

    That sounds great, I've had the ww1 for a few years my son found it in some junk some one was selling ,The ww2 I bought for a few dollars just to compare different I d tags from different countries, but the more you look at these erkennungsmarken the more interesting you find them, so I may have found a new interest. This forum has taught me a great deal, and now it seems funny I was fooled by that HD tag so easily.

    Could the L.S.R. stand for Landesschuetzenregiment?

    You have to look at all the information to 'translate' abbreviations Glenn, not just one part- it's necessary that it all fits together; so it wouldn't just be Landesschützen-Regiment, it'd be 5. Kompanie Landesschützen-Regiment-Kommando, which doesn't make any sense. You can have a Kommando section of a large unit like a Division, but for a Regiment the command is the Stab, and then it'd be Stab instead of 5. Kompanie- it couldn't be both. So that elminates Landesschützen-Regiment as a possibility for the 'LSR' part. Not only that but Regimenter generally have numbers, not cities as their specific identifiers. That's three strikes LOL
