    Thank you so much. My dad never received any of him medals from WWII and has nothing from that period. I have had to reconstruct his time i the Aleutions from his DD214. He is now 93 and I know his days are numbered so I am working against time. These were a perfect addition. I am so greatful you had a template because I had no idea what went on them. GOD BLESS

    The tags came extremely fast, accurately prepared, and they were above expectation. I ordered multiple Type 2 tags for a historical display, and I was not disappointed. This is the place for tags. Thanks

    There are many people banging out “dog tags,” but Lance is the ONLY one I’ve found who can make a true WWII identification tag. They’re dead on!

    Mike K

    There are many folks who can punch out a dog tag, but in my picky opinion, this is the ONLY place that understands the WWII identification tag process. The tags are dead on and they’ll make sure you get what you requested.

    Always on point! Thank you for yet another set of period accurate dog tags. I always appreciate the fast shipping as well!

    Garth Katner, Ph.D.

    Great piece for commemorating the ultimate sacrifice of my late Uncle. One question and one suggestion though with regard to the original 1944 chain. Is it supposed to come in 2 pieces? And second, I would suggest you don’t tape the original chain packet since it has pretty cool old timey instructions that get smudged when you remove it.

  15. 5 out of 5


    Exactly what I wanted. I wanted replica tags to honor my dad. I’m thinking these will make a wonderful Christmas gift for his grandson.

    Great service and quality. Thank you very much. Yet another example to forever honor “the greatest generation”, among them my still kicking 98 year old dad!

    Very high quality tags. I was looking for old style WWII-type dog tags, and was unable to find them online. I was skeptical at first, but after receiving the dog tags, I was extremely pleased with the quality and workmanship. Customer service was also top notch, and the quality of their products is extremely high. I am very pleased with my dog tags

  18. 5 out of 5


    Great product but I didn’t realize it was for a pair. I purchased two and received 2 pairs. Still a great product.

    These were awesome. We wore these as we flew on the B29 FiFi in Colorado in remembrance of my grandpa Marshall Simcox, who was a B29 pilot. I would definitely by again.

    I wanted Dog tags to match my grandfathers to give to my kids for memorial day. These were a exact replica of his from WWII, just new. except for the aging on the original, they are indistinguishable.

    I’ve always felt badly about losing my Dads WWII dog tags as a kid. I was so proud to get these replicas and they are perfect. They hang on the flag case from his funeral.

  27. 5 out of 5


    I ordered a couple sets of these dog tags and the M1940 chains years ago for WW2 reenacting. I just purchased another 3 sets with the M1940 chains. I wouldn’t think of buying these from anyone else. Excellent product,company, service, and above all, the information to guide you in proper selection of what you are looking for. Regards, Andy, Mid Michigan Airmen

    Well made dog tags, sturdy chains, and especially, excellent information on what to fill out for historically accurate tags. The order took a bit to get here, but that’s the result of it being from such a specialized company. Overall: if you’re on the fence, jump it.

    My Uncle was a survivor of the Death March of Bataan, then put on a jap ship, bombed once, he was one of 10 survivors, put on second ship, bombed again, and there were no survivors, nd his remains never found. I had always hoped his remain would be found, and dog tags returned, howvere since this will most likely never happe, I just ordered some exact duplicates. THis company was excellent to deal with, as is the product!!

    These are a replica of my dad’s tags. He is no longer with us but I feel he would be proud for me to have these. He was a wwII pow and I don’t know if he had his tags when he got home, but if he were alive today he would proudly display these as I will do. Thank you so much. PAULA.

    These tags are exactly what I was hoping they’d be. They look just like original WWII dog tags. Outstanding service and shipped quickly.

    I originally ordered a set from another vender and when I rec’d them three weeks later I threw them in the trash, they were horrible! I decided to give you a try and when I received them 10 days later I couldn’t have been happier! Great job and they look like the real thing. Thank you!

    All 5-star ratings and well deserved. The two sets of tags are for my three Niece’s because they want Grandfather’s dog tags to wear. The tags received are virtually identical to the 75 year old original I have on my key chain. It’s like they were made on the same machine with the same letter stamps! Excellent work!

    A very positive experience. Great customer service & communication. Excellent work done in a timely fashion that I needed for my niece’s Christmas present. I highly recommend them.

    Duplicated my dad’s dog tags issued in 1942. Original tags had been in the stamping machine twice, second time to add in additional tetanus shot date. Great job! Thanks.

    Just bought three sets of dog tags that had my father’s info on them. They were absolutely perfect. It was identical to my father’s dog tags. I gave a set to my brothers and kept one for me. My brothers absolutely loved them. Thanks so much. I can now put my father’s dog tags back in a protective display and wear the copy for myself. I will continue to shop here for my dog tags and will recommend to my friends as well.

  58. 5 out of 5


    Did business with them to purchase a reproduction of my Granddad’s dog tags from WW2. Not only did they look great, the time to make them and ship them was perfect. Will def do business with them again soon.

    After my Dad gave my nephew his original dog tags from WW2 before he passed away my sister was very upset as she was very close to my Dad. When I found your website and discovered I could order duplicates of the originals, it was an answer to prayer. They looked exactly like the originals and my sister is very happy.

  60. 5 out of 5


    Had two sets made for my son and I for reenactments and they look great. They look just like the originals that I’ve seen and they came in a reasonable amount of time! I’m very happy and would do business with them again!

    R.A. Comstock

    Excellent! We bought a set each for our seven year old son and eight year old daughter. Lance was very helpful getting these right. We are teaching our kids about ww2 and these are a great tool to help them better understand our history. The kids haven’t taken them off and they have been jingling around the house since they arrived! Thanks again!

  64. 5 out of 5


    Awesome! Perfect in every way. Shipped quickly too.

    Simply put, great tags for the reenactor or everyday use.

  66. 5 out of 5


    The other reviews speak for themselves.
    Great reproduction.
    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!

  67. 5 out of 5


    The tags are extremely nice, I am well pleased and I will tell friends if they are looking for replacements, this is the place to go.

    Perfect addition to my grandfather’s memorial case. I looked around at several sites offering dog tags, this one had the best information and reviews. Thank you Lance!

  71. 5 out of 5


    Best tags I have received to date. I would suggest the tags to anyone

    Lance did an outstanding job making custom-ordered WWII dog tags for me! I had a few questions, which he answered quickly then had an extremely quick turnaround once the order was placed. The website was very helpful and easy to navigate. I’m extremely pleased with the results and will be coming back!

    Ethan Borell

    These dog tags are the best by far. I ordered these in hopes to keep my grandfathers legacy from the war going and it is. I’m honored to say that WWII Dog Tags made a perfect copy of my grandfathers tags and made it possible for his memory to live on even more than it already has.

    Great product! Great people to do business with!

  81. 5 out of 5


    When I moved, many items disappeared from packed boxes, including my late father’s WWII dog tags. Although the originals, in Monel with a patina, are gone, these reproductions are great… The lettering and format are as I remember the originals. Good job and fast delivery.

  82. 5 out of 5


    After my father passed at age 93 my family was interested in his WW2 service history. So I ordered 8 sets of dog tags for everyone to have as a Momento. The tags were true to the originals and everyone was thrilled to have a copy. Fast service was appreciated.

  83. 5 out of 5


    First impressions: simple joy. Then I thought: it’s hard to read. Oh, right, I need my glasses now at my age… They seem a bit lighter and thin than I expected. Verifications done: they have proper weight and thikness. My Goodness, you did a good job there! Oh, and by the way, I alerted them before shipment that I had forgotten an important letter (religion) and they reassured me: they did it. Excellent service.

    Well, unfortunately I’m only able to give one star to these dog tags. I received my dog tags and the looks and feeling of them are great. Very authentic and well made. Unfortunately, one of my tags had a typo in the Last name. One was perfect, the other was off by a letter. Attempted to contact the company but have not received any word back. Wish I could give Five Stars….

    Thomas Audie

    Sooooo,simple. I had my father tag remade. I was able to get his ww2 records & retrieve the information needed through those records. The way the form is made out makes it easy to fill out the information. Then having the 4 types of tags for each time period, was really nice to have the actual design for the time he was in the service. Thanks guys, great job!

    My father’s WWII dog tags were lost many years ago, but I had his serial number and blood type, so now I have a pair of dog tags that are identical to the ones that he wore from 1943 until 1945. Thank you for a great product and great customer service.

  92. 5 out of 5


    Really good quality product. Everything is as it should be. Dog tag is identical. There was no problem to delivery it to europe. Also love originál chain. Thanks!

    Was able to get exact duplicates of my dad’s WW2 dog tags. Planning on visiting Europe next year retracing his steps, and I’ll be wearing his dog tags in honor of him.

    Scott Moore

    I had a copy of my Grandfather’s tags made so that I could keep a set, and give the original to my cousin. I had to double check that I put the right set in the right envelope as they were identical. Thank you so much for allowing me to share with her, so that we both can keep my grandfather’s legacy alive!

    I’m absolutely delighted with my dog tags! Some time ago I used the number generator to get my service number, but never got around to ordering tags.

    I finally did so. I received my tags in a timely basis. But I discovered a misspelling on one of my tags. Lance was very good about getting me a replacement in a timely basis.

    I couldn’t be happier with my tags *and* the customer service.

  99. 5 out of 5


    just perfect.
    the costumer service is outstanding… really nice dog tags… and fast delivery to switzerland. thank you so much and merry xmas.

  100. 5 out of 5


    The web site was easy to use and the dog tags were exactly as expected. I was able to reproduce my dad’s WWII tags. They were a central part of a shadow box reflecting his service and really lent an air of authenticity. Thanks so much!

  101. 5 out of 5

    Chris Stickney

    I have just started getting into reenacting and ordered a set of dog tags and they are perfect

    Mark Doherty

    I had a set of tags made to honor my uncle who died on July 6, 1944 in France as part of the battle fought by the 79th Division at La Haye-du-Puits. The tags came out great and contained all the information I provided. I went to other sites but they allowed fewer characters on each line which is why I bought from World War 2 Dog Tags. They look authentic.

  103. 5 out of 5

    Matt K

    Shape and design are perfect. Grandpa’s WW2 tags feel different and are discolored, but overall, they are very close. The blood type and religion didn’t end up in the exact spots, but they’re close. My grandfather’s information is clearly visible on the back of the original, also, but the reproductions are less clear. Very happy with them. Have it on my keychain without worrying about losing his originals.

  104. 3 out of 5


    I could have ordered the standard beaded chain with my tags for only $9.99, but decided instead to pay a lot extra ($25.99)for the tags with the Original WWII Beaded Chain, described as “still in the original package, dated 1945, and are unopened” for the collectible aspect. Well, the collectible value was rendered worthless when the chain’s original envelope, bearing original printed instructions, was shipped TAPED to a piece of cardboard for mailing. Needless to say, the envelope was damaged despite its careful removal from the cardboard. Sadly, a reviewer from 2016 mentioned the same problem, suggesting the envelope not be taped. Five years later, in 2021, they still ship the same way. Evidently the vendor doesn’t listen to its customers, or simply doesn’t care. The chain’s envelope could have easily been protected by inserting it into a slightly larger envelope to be taped for shipping. Aside from that, the tags themselves were great. I just suggest saving money and frustration by ordering your tags with the cheaper chains.

    Pat Jones

    Very cool. My grandpa recently just passed and these are a nice tribute to him. I never saw the originals so I can’t compare but, too my knowledge, came out great. My grandfather served from 43-46 driving an ambulance in Central Europe.

  106. 3 out of 5


    Was a little upset they misspelled my family name. It’s “PROCTOR” NOT “PROCTER”

  107. 5 out of 5

    Chris Dziuk

    Got exactly what I ordered, absolutely top quality. I do us army airborne living history so these needed to be good, If you want authentic looking dog tags don’t go anywhere else. Can’t recommend wwiidogtags highly enough. Many thanks.

  108. 5 out of 5


    I absolutely love how my tags came out! I made replicas of my grandpa’s dog tags and I’m going to give one set to my dad for Christmas! I will be making another purchase in the future!
