Description

DISKS – 4 THAT CAME IN A LOT WITH A DOG TAG. THREE ARE GILT DISKS – A
“US”, AND TWO DIFFERENT STYLE “US/KAN/114”, FOURTH ONE A 1910 MEDIC. ALSO WITH THIS LOT IS A “COPPER” DOG TAG FOR “OTTO WALLACE/ USA/ 1474479”.   I THINK IT WAS MADE FROM A LARGE BRITISH WWI PENNY. PERHAPS HE LOST HIS ORIGINAL AND DID NOT WANT TO REPORT IT SO HE MADE HIS OWN.  THE “114/KAN” DISKS WERE THE 114TH CAVALRY, ORGANIZED IN 1921 AND ADDED TO THE  24TH CAV DIVISION,  IN 1940 IT WAS  CONVERTED TO THE 127TH FIELD ARTILLERY REGT.   SO THESE DISKS AND THE DOG TAG ARE CORRECT FOR THIS PERIOD.  LOT PRICE
