World War 2 Other Military Items
German Soldier's ID Tags World War 2
'Dogtags' made from zinc, aluminium, and steel. The ladder were issued to tank personnel and airmen because they did not melt in case of fire.
The fragment is some 15 cm / 6“ long. The bottom side shows how sharp the edges are.
Probably this sterling silver item is from 1945. But since the badge was issued even after 1945 no certain date can be given.
