U.S.M.C./U.S. Navy WWII Reproduction Dog Tags.
Used by the United States Marine Corps and United States Navy in World War Two, these oval tags first came into use around 1917.
The P1917 was used by the U.S. Navy and seagoing Marines (Marines serving on ships) during World War One and the between wars period. Information on them was handwritten and acid etched, including a finger print on the reverse. This process involves the use of hazardous chemicals and We do not preform this process for you. Instead we offer high quality tags that can be personalized.
The P1940 came into use just before World War Two and information was usually machine stamped into them. Stocks of P1917's were often used up.
Custom engraved dog tags contain the following information:
- 1st line -- Your last name;
- 2nd line -- The first initial of your first and middle names;
- 3rd line -- Your serial number and religion (C=Catholic; P=Prodestant & H=Hebrew);

A dog tag necklace is now a trendy fashion accessory, but it was never designed with fashion purposes in mind. The metal dog tag necklace was first introduced back in 1906 for the American military.
Today, there are many variations on the original dog tag necklace with major fashion houses and jewelry manufacturers putting their on spin on this military inspired design. The DT1 Dog Tag is one of the more popular styles. Most choose to add a 3mm sterling silver dog tag bead chain.
The original metal military dog tag necklaces were the size of a silver half dollar, they were stamped with the name, rank, company, regiment, or corps of the wearer. All those in the military were required to wear them whenever the field kit was on. The tags were worn on a chain or cord underneath the clothing.
