    Default WW2 German HE 111 F identity disk or plate? Did it go on the plane?

    Greeting from Oregon, USA. Just found this ID disk for a HE 111 F. I am hoping its from the plane itself but I am not sure. Can anyone help with the other numbers and letters and give me a little more on what exactly it is? It was found in a large pile of US veterans items. Any and all help is appreciated. Also, is it collectable in the world of WW2 German collectors? The other pieces are nice but I know what they are. Thanks to all.

    Neat item. It certainly appears to be from the airplane itself since it's a label from the Heinkel aircraft factory in Rostock. The He111F was a minor variant produced in small numbers before the war- the main bomber was the H, so this one's several back (since there were subvariants between them as well). There's no indication it's from a piece of equipment or anything of that nature- such things are assigned a part number (Fl. Nr.) and this just has what I presume is an airframe number- the Fabr. Nr. since that seems to simply mean 'production number'. During the war the term was 'Werk-Nummer', but being pre-war, it's possible the system was a little different. Baujahr means construction year, but that's obviously coded. It probably has some value to Luftwaffe collectors, but it'd probably be minimal since it is a minor variant of the bomber and it's not a wartime plane.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Very nice bring-back item. ( I also like the Amico - or LGB Pilot wings.........! )

    HE 111F built for the Turkish airforce.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
