Title Leibstandarte dog tag - Waffen SS
Nationality German
Period c 1942/3
Sold

In all probability, a Russian ground find. The owner was in the 4th Anti-Tank Company of Hitler's No 1 SS field regiment, the Leibstandarte (4th/SS Panzer Jaeger Kompanie 1). 'B' stands for his blood group. '457' is his regimental number. The Leibstandarte was famous as Hitler's bodyguard regiment, raised in 1933.

These dog tags were carried by all active field units of the German armed forces and were meant, on the death of the owner, to be snapped in half, one half buried with the corpse, the other salvaged for regimental records.

The condition is good for a ground find. More often than not, these are heavily corroded, usually due to the soil conditions and/or the disintegration of the corpse.

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!
