Dog Tags are examples, all information on them is imaginative with
any similarities being coincidental.
This dog tag shape became the norm sometime during WWII and is the
same today. Other shapes and sizes exist, and the originality of
those older dog tags is of value to the owner. However, they will not
fit into the Honor Buckle.
If you are the owner of an older shape dog tag, or have lost the
original dog tags, we recommend the information be placed on a new
dog tag of the current shape. Dog tags can be purchased from dogtagus.com. Also
view our FAQ's regarding different types of dog tags.
There are 2 types of lettering on dog tags, Debossed (punched) and
Embossed (raised). The older and more "salty" tags are debossed and
the rolled edging is to the backside. The famous notched tag is still
available. Most of the current suppliers produce Embossed dog tags,
some with edging on the front and some on the back. An Internet
search on your computer will find many choices.
