    Perhaps neither are, but one was cleaned, the other was not cleaned.
    Don....

    After digging 100's if not 1,000's of pieces of sterling silver (coins, jewelry, flatware etc) out of salt water beaches you just learn to recognize that sterling turns purple in that environment. The chain also on the sterling silver tag is marked AUTOMADE STERLING as well. I have not tried yet to clean the actual dog tag as I think it's pretty cool left purple.

    I have a possible phone number for a possible son and an email address to a possible grand daughter that I will try to reach out to tomorrow. I'll post if they pan out or not. Thank you so far for everyone's help and private messages leading me to this information!

    As a disabled vet and a huge WWII history junky. It makes me so proud of the people on this site. The response of so many to just this thread to find the owner of a single dog tag makes my eyes water a little ( I get teary eyed hearing Taps) You people are amazing and I'm proud to be associated with you.

    Looking harder,
    The best TH experience I've had is joining with the American Legion and another TH-er in Europe to create a Memorial Day event in Ohio of returning a WWII 'dog tag' to an soldier who lost it during the Battle of the Bulge. And I've had a few good experiences, like salvaging a Spanish galleon--but the return of that tag tops them all. I salute you for your service.

    UPDATE: I reached the son of the Dog Tag owner, Tim, today by phone. Interestingly enough Tim has his father's dog tags. I can assume that this set was lost and then replaced. I did learn that Byron Reese Berlin did indeed die of a sudden heart attack when he was 38 years old. His son, Timothy was 4 at the time. Tim knows almost nothing about where and how his father served or how the Dog Tags ended up in Florida or why one was Sterling Silver. The Dog Tags are going out in the mail back to Tim this week. Thank you to everyone that helped to locate both the son and the granddaughter of Mr. Berlin. Tim stated that since he already has a set of his fathers dog tags that he may give this set to his sister or one to his sister and one to his daughter. Tim was very grateful for everyone's work in contacting him.
