Authentic WW2 US Military debossed stainless steel dog tag set.

These tags are exact replicas of the tags issued to US service personnel during WW2.

The WW2 tags differ from modern dog tags in a number of ways....

- Rather than being embossed, these tags are debossed, where the characters are stamped into the face of the tag.

- These tags are read from the smooth side not the side with the rolled edge as with the modern tags

- The notch on the tag allows the tags to be fitted in to the Addressograph model 70 imprinter one way only.

The model 70 imprinter was used  by medics to copy the details from the tags on to paper quickly and accurately.

We use the exact same equipment that was used in World War 2 to personalise the tags.

As a result the character set available is quite limited compared with the current issued tags.

Characters available:

Letters A-Z Caps only

Numbers 0-9

Punctuation .  /  '  -  & (  )
