Leather case for German dog-tag (soldier's identification disc). Skin color is natural (light beige). The skin of vegetable tanning is soft and pleasant to the body. The case is equipped with a cord for wearing around the neck. The cord must pass through the holes in the case and be tied on the tag, so the tag can be taken out from the case, but it is impossible to drop or lose it.
This case is equipped with a press-button. The buttons could be different, we used standard buttons for the cover of the German field bottle. We assume that this might be a by-product of the factory that made the covers (the leather that was used for lining the leather loops on the cover was appropriate to produce the tag-cases). The press-button does not allow the pouch to open, and the pouch looks more neat.
The button gives an advantage to those who carry not only a token in their wallet, but also an untouchable supply of money (for the morning, for example).
We only sell a case with a lace. The metal tag in the photo is shown to demonstrate the size of the cover, the dog-tag does not go with the cover, it is sold separately.
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).
