    Default WW1 US Dog Tags opinion needed

    Hi All.
    I picked up these WW1 dog tags the other day, I researched the name and found his date of birth and death and that he did serve during WW1, although not sure of the capacity, strange thing about these tags is the areas that seem to be crudley scratched out, under magnification you can see the the PVT before his name was scratched out on each one and on the back of the tags USA was scratched out on the bottom area, although it was left alone on the front, have you even seen this before? any idea why he would do this? just trying to make some sence of it, here are the photo's.

    Here's a record from the U.S. National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, 1866-1938, which is almost certainly him, so puts him with the 362nd Infantry.

    Cheers, Tom
