WW2 PRE '65 EXACT REPLICA NOTCHED ARMY DOG TAGS
Notched dog tags were designed to allow the transfer of GI’s details quickly and easily to medical records. They were introduced in World War 2 as a way to hold the identifying information on dog tags in place whilst an imprinter was used to transfer the information onto patient records. The notch allowed the tags to be placed into a special imprinter that would hold them in place during the transfer. They were aligned by medics into equipment similar to a credit card imprinter today. The Addressograph model 70 imprinter, which our sister company offers, is still in use throughout the world.
Following numerous customer requests, we are now pleased to offer these replica world war 2 dog tags. The tags are supplied without silencers as these were never used as part of WWII army dog tag sets. Modern silencers also do not fit correctly around the tags due to the notch.
The tags are the perfect replica of military dog tags from world WW2 and are a great way to complete your re-enactment outfit, your milsim or airsoft outfits or as a gift of remembrance for yourself or loved ones.
You can emboss up to 5 lines of text up to 13 characters on each tag.
This tag set consists of two tags embossed with your own personal message as well as long and short stainless steel chains.
As with all of our products, these tags are embossed on our genuine US military electric embossing machines and the tags and chains are sourced from the USA from GSA (US government) approved vendors (demonstrated by 'USA' being stamped on the chain connectors).
