NOK Tags with half street address

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I've been going through some of my tags and just noticed something interesting about a couple of them. One is half a house and the other is a half street. I don't recall ever seeing the little 1/2 stamp on tags before but maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention. Anybody else have any examples?

Looking for Purple Hearts to service members from Roanoke Virginia and the surrounding area (Bedford, Botetourt, Vinton, Salem, Floyd, Franklin, Craig, Giles, etc.)

I'm willing to pay a premium. $$$

Also looking for:

Purple Hearts named to service members buried in the Normandy Cemetery or Arlington Cemetery.

Dog tags named to service members from Virginia.

You mentioned half a street, and I was going to ask if it was Austin! I have a freind in Austin who lives on 9 1/2 Street. Only place I've ever heard of so far that did half streets! 

 

I've never seen the 1/2 stamp on a dog tag before, either, which is cool. Was the 1/2 a stamp in the stamping set?

This is the first for me. I can see a half double house address like that  but a street?? I wonder if it was a alley that formed at the end of a street or branched off one.

Why not just another name to the street instead of 1/2????

No . . . I asked my friend if it was like an added alley/area that they turned into a street. No . . . he said they were real streets. Crazy! :)
