    SS Panzer Grenadier Ersatz Battalion 11, which I assume was the replacement unit for 11th SS Nordland Division. The “ausbildungs” appears to be xxx’ed out, and another ausbildungs company stamped below. Any comments are welcome!

    The thing that caught my eye on this emarke is the font of the numbers. I have been comparing them with other known fake numbers in the fake font thread and I think they match with the numbers in that thread, so for me it is a thumbs down.

    Not sure why it would be stamped this way when they are usually stamped A u E Btl. I don't favour this one either.

    Thank you for your input. I’ve found two other tags, with the same format. I think they are legitimate discs, I can’t think of a reason for a faker to make several of these.

    I've been going through the fake font threads again and I must admit it is a tough one. The numbers match really close to the fake fonts, but then again it also looks like I can see little differences between them. I am really split now and don't want to give you the wrong advice here.

    I am looking forward for one of the others to help out, as I am curious about your example and it will also help me in gaining more knowlegde.

    If they are all coming from the same location then it might be a sign that the 5 Kompanie marked their ekm in this fashion.

    Combined the pictures so that they are easier to compare.

    Best, Jan

    Nice and original brand!
    The devaluation came from the renaming of the unit.
