    I bought 2 sets because I thought they were Sterling Silver. They are not. Don’t know what they actually are, but for sure not Sterling. I already have three sets of original WWII chains that ARE Sterling (including my father’s). These chains clean up but they don’t polish up. They also have a slight copper tint. I sent an email about this when I first received them but it has been a week and no response.

    I couldn’t be happier with mine. I really like that its an original from 1940-43 and the chain is much more silver than the one in the photo. It has some tarnishing because of its age but that only adds to it.

    This chain with 2 claw hooks exactly matches my father in law’s dog tags. The patina and wear and tear is perfect. I’m not sure what kind of metal his dog tags are they do not seem to be sterling silver. Knowing that this is an authentic chain made me confident in displaying these treasures.
