hard to say if its a real thing.. or modern...

what it means though:

He111H3 - Heinkel 111 HIII - that was the plane used by KG53 ( http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/...wader/KG53.htm )

and that symbol on the right - was a symbol of 3rd Gruppe of that Geschwader

purpose of that token.... ?? no idea... (suvenir ?? commemorative ??)

Thanks for the information it solved a long mystery. One thing I forgot to mention was length and width witch are 2 5/8" long and 1 1/6" wide. After what you have said about the information on the tag you might be right about some kind of commemorative item. I can’t see any use for it except for a key chain, but maybe someone else has more information.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o></o>
