The stamping is on the wrong side of the tag, and you can tell the size of the stamping is larger than the typical tiny font on most WWII tags. They are attached to the sterling latch necklace.

I'm guessing he lost his original tags? Unfortunately he passed 3yrs ago, before I started looking at his mementos. He was in the Philippines by the end of the war, so I was thinking he got replacements on a ship or on land, but since this stamping is so unique, I may never know the backstory.

As I said before, these are original and never messed with since my mom put his stuff in a shadow box in the 90's. Plus, if someone switched his tags, they would have taken the sterling necklace...

This Dog Tag I found many years ego in France near Reims, when I was working in vineyard.
I wonder is it possible to find some informations about it's owner?
