Looks ok to me, and Verona is about 25 mins upriver from me. Nice NOK set.

It looked OK to me also until i saw the hole ive seen several fake dog tags being exposed on here having the same hole in the tag. All real tags i saw they look different.

Hole looks wrong. Stamping looks off. I would say that this is a repro set.

I agree these are no good for a variety of reasons.

There are definitely fake NOK sets out there. Take a close look at this set and the ones in the other thread. The dogtags in post #1 have some issues.
