    Welcome to the forum. The primary marking is 'Stammkompanie Grenadier-Ersatz-Bataillon 46' (Root Company, Grenadier Replacement Batallion 46), a regular infantry unit- the X is an odd addition though; the unit was located in Wehrkreis X, so perhaps that's it- I can find no other obvious reason for it, and it's not something I've seen before on this type of disc. The '61' is the soldier's Stammrollennummer (roster number)
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Thank you for the welcome this forum is very interesting. I was just trying to get any type of information on this ID tag. As I said I found it
    hunting in the woods in Luxembourg in the vicinaty of Welscheid. Too bad can't track to who roster number was.

    There's a 'sticky' thread above with a link to the Lexikon der Wehrmacht site that'll have the specific unit information- it's in Infanterie though since that's the original type title just changed to Grendier in 1942.
