WWii dog tag marking


Recommended Posts

I’ve posted this on a couple forums including the one for dog tags but no one seems to know what the d1/22 marking represents.  Anyone have any ideas?

It looks like several of the numerals in the serial number are overstamped as well.

If I had to guess I'd say it probably does not represent anything and may have been stamped to cover up an error on the tag. That 'P' was probably stamped in the wrong place at first and then covered up with the two 1/2 marks. Just a guess.

Note:  Clarence would've been 31 years of age at this time.  Wonder why the diagnosis was "withheld by NARA".

Looks like T42 and blood type O were also stamped in the wrong place and over stamped with his ASN.

 

Maybe the guy's fist day on the tag machine or maybe he had a long night out before.
