    Looks like a tag for the Pioneer Company at RUK (Reserviupseerikoulu) in Finland. What it originally was attached to probably will remain a mystery as will the age of the item.

    Btw... I don´t know how the moderators feel about the fact that you are selling items over the discussions forum. Personally I advise you to use the classified section!

    Other militaria - Militaria Collectibles buy - sell at War Relics

    This plaque is from bottom plate of graduation puukko/ finnish knife. Voluntary commemorative sale item for Reserve officer school graduates.
    After war item, I think numbers are graduation date but are missing dots 1.7.49 = first day of july 1949

    @MATHAT.....I very much appreciate this humor. Laughter is good medicine indeed.........Thanks, Doug.

    AFTERTHOUGHT.....I also liked the double meaning joke about 1749 being its date....SUBTLE humor indeed.

    That's quite incredible Verikauha you actually found out what it is thank you very much! you got any use for it?
    I can mail it to you since you discover what it is... otherwise it's random bonus to someone.
    And if anyone is interested... knife looks pretty much something like this.
    I don't know how well your theory of dates fits with this one cos it has only 3 digits nevertheless you were correct with a knife.

    Yea its kind of one of those jokes answering it you might become joke it self...

    Oh there was no joke i intend to... Jan's answer wasn't really answering anything so i just wrote something as obvious back...
    But you're welcome if you found something amusing there... like they say ambiguous people have double times fun...

    Pion Ruk 264 would be 2 graduation batch(december), year 1964. First graduation happens in summer june/july.
    Those numbers feel pretty random but they are related to when person is conscripted, december (first) or july (second), and a year.
    My reserve NCO school graduate batch was numbered 2/08
    This is "intti" stuff.
