Description

Leather case for the ID-tag (Erkennungsmarke or EM). The leather color is natural (light beige). Vegetable-tanned leather, soft and pleasant to the body. The case comes without a cord (that is for wearing around the neck). The cord usually passed through the holes in the case and tied on the token, so the token could be taken out of the case, but it was impossible to drop or lose.

The ID-tag or "dog-tag" is made in a quality approximately corresponding to the original product. That is, it is not a sleek and neat modern wallet, tailored according to a template. This wallet is assembled from leftover leather by hand, there are bruises and scars on the skin, everything is exactly as it was on the original ones.

Historical reference.

Original dog-tag cases were made by different companies for sale to soldiers of the Third Reich. People bought it at their own expense in the soldiers' stores. The tag was required to be worn around the neck; it was not allowed to put it in a pocket or wear on another part of the body. But many did not like to feel cold metal on their body (especially if the tag was steel). In addition, bacteria and viruses feel great on metal, which in rare cases could cause skin irritation. Therefore, there are many options for the original tag covers.

In the small wallet, it was also convenient to store a photo of your beloved or money, for example.

Various original covers for tokens are shown in the photo below (photos taken from the famous site of the store of original items germanmilitaria.com).
