YEAH! That is a great find!!
The dog tag book currently has 1951 listed as the oldest known tag from TYNGSBORO Mass. I am 100% sure that is the same place, however, the listing in the book will Stay that way and we'll add 1936 TYNGUSBOROUGH Mass as a new listing!
THANK YOU for the report!
That is a cool find! Your tag is from 1955 (EXP. 6-30-1956 means it was issued in 1955).
The current oldest reported dog tag from Humboldt County CA is dated 1938, however, I am sure there's ones older than that! Just none have been found or reported yet!
Thank you for sharing,
WOW ~ that is amazing!!!! That 1894 East Alton tag is a new discovery. The book currently has 1946 listed as the oldest reported dog tag from there. I will forward your picture to the editor so they can change this info in the future prints
Oh yeah! That is great!! Dog tags are my favorite treasures to dig. Unfortunately I don't find as many as I'd like to, but at least I get to see other peoples' finds. LOL
PLEASE have your friend e-mail me pictures of their 1905 dog tag. I'd love to see it
Very interesting tag! I assume the other side is blank, right?
I am not familiar with that tag. 1918 is a very late date for a "maverick" tag. And the serial number is quite large ~ #3223.
This one is gonna take some research!
I have the newest edition of Dr. William Bones book US DOG LICENSE TAGS. Let me know what tags you have and I can look 'em up!
The Ohio county issued tags are very well documented. Most of the counties started issuing tags in 1918.
That 1925 numeral shaped dog tax tag is AWESOME!! WOOHOO
FYI ~ the oldest reported dog tag from Biloxi MS is dated 1913. However, there easily could be ones older than that. Just none have been found or reported yet.
WOW ~ that is a super awesome dog tag!! This is a new discovery piece!
I have the newest edition of Dr. William Bones book US DOG LICENSE TAGS. In the book it currently has 1974 listed as the oldest reported dog tag from New London NH.
I will forward your picture to Dr. Bone so he can...
