Interesting Luftwaffe dog tag ‘Erkennungsmarke’ with number 53501 referring to first company of Aufklärungsgruppe 121 (1.(F) Aufkl.Gruppe 121). The dog tag itself has been cut out as a luftwaffe rank gul by the pilot at that time – a nice ‘extra touch’. After a brief search this is the unit history;
