    Outstanding product the m1940 chain feels better overall then wearing the regular bead chain.

    Extremely happy with this chain. I ordered it and the beaded chain. Tags hang better on this chain. They lay flat and the chain adds a really good look to my impression.

    I had lots of questions and an incomplete service record to go by and Lance was extremely helpful. Received the tags and can’t wait to give them as Christmas gifts. It was a pleasure doing business with this company.

    I lost my grandfather’s real WWII dog tag because I had it on a ball chain that broke. My cousin who got the other tag, got the original chain, needless to say he did not lose his. I’ve got replacements now, and with this chain, I’m not worried about loosing them this time. Well built. Great construction Shipped quick.

    This chain is almost like the original silver version. However, the “nubbins” on the hooks stick out farther than on the original silver version. Dog tag cannot hang straight because of these larger “nubbins.” Other than that, it is a good reproduction.

    Exactly what I wanted. Looks just like my moms

    Great product though I shortened both chains. Now I can wear my dog tag and as a tribute to my father, my dad’s dog tag fm WWII.

    Great quality and a sharp looking product. Only problem is that my P1940 Navy tags don’t fit. Not your fault. Had a set of original AAF tags from my Grandad that fit. Went on like they were born to do it. Going to order ball and chain from you for the P1940 set. Guess the Navy didn’t get the good chains for theirs. The ball and chain will be better than the white HBT issued. Pretty sure my grandfather would have upgraded from the white string in the day.

    As ordered

    Wonderful way to wear those tags! I think it is much better than the ball chain issued.

    Great reproduction of the early chain.
    Although I’m a living hisotrian, I bought these for my mother who never saw her dad’s WWII dog tags. They fit the bill and moved emotions. Thanks WWII Dog Tags!

    Just like the original set that I have. Thanks for setting up a set of dog tags like the originals my Uncle Mike wore on D Day. I buried a set on the beach at Normandy…he always thought of the boys that didn’t come home. He always wanted to go back, but could never afford the trip. I feel I left a tribute to him buried on Omaha Beach. He was in the second wave of troops that landed, he was an MP attached to the 5th Engineers Special Brigade. Thanks!

    Well done. Dog tags for my dad are now wearable and can be hung up for display instead of in a drawer. Thank you. He would be proud to know I kept them and be glad I honor his service and survival.

    Perfect, this is my third time ordering this product as I have used it to complete replicas of both my grandfathers’s tags and I purchased one for myself as I prefer it to today’s ball chain that comes with modern dog tags.

    This chain is a faithful reproduction of the original one affixed to my moms tags from 78 years ago. The links are a bit larger, the clasps are really a spot on reproduction of the original. I am delighted with my purchase. I wear my moms tags along with my dad’s wedding ring attached to them in gratitude to my parents service in WWII along with my 3 Uncles and Grandfather who all fought as well. I would like to extend my gratitude to all who have served and given so much to our country and our freedom.

    I am completely satisfied with my new WWII Dog Tag chain that will be used to display my father’s WWII Dog Tag that was found by 30 years ago by metal detector and returned recently to me, his Son, by its kind original kind finder. The high quality of and attention to detail of this beautiful replica chain is immediately apparent at first glance. Thank you!

    Best product on the market, truly exceeded my expectations. Will recommend and continue to buy from wwiidogtags in the future.

  57. 5 out of 5


    I’ve seen the originals and this chain looks just like them. The fact that they’re hand made is even more impressive.

  58. 5 out of 5


    I think these guys are amazing! Have a pair of tags that are very special to me that were my grandfathers back then. I have worn them so much that I had to tact weld them closed many years ago. It got to the point where they just wouldn’t hold it anymore. When I found these guys and what they do I was so happy that I did. Even though they are not real they look exactly the same as what was on them. I definitely recommend them!

    I received a reproduction M1940 chain. It is great. It is the right length and very well made. I imagine that it will last me an incredibly long time. I also like that it doesn’t seem to snag my hair. I highly recommend this chain.
