Gestapo ID Disc

Post by PVH » Sun Aug 28, 2011 11:41 am

Hello all,
I have just received an oval Gestapo ID disc. The obverse contains the words "GEHEIME STAATSPLOIZEI". The face displays the Reichsadler above an alpha numeric appointment of "M 9/86". Can anyone explain this alpha numeric code to me?
Thanks,
PVH

Hello PVH,

I hope you did not pay much money for this item as it is a fake. Original Gestapo warrant disks were never marked with such markings as "M9/86" which is presumably supposed to refer to a maker.

Best Wishes,
Simon.

Hello Simon,
I paid nothing. It was a gift from a friend. I knew it was a reproduction.
Thanks
