Ben hit it, but I think in the early days of WW2 some still had this type. There were 2 in the set for body ID.

My Grandfather's WW1 tags had only a number on them. I don't know for sure, but he was injured pretty bad in boot camp. He resisted being sent home so they made him a cook and kept him in Virginia, at Camp Lee. Since he would never wind up in combat perhaps they didn't see the need to print name or country. He survived the influenza epidemic of 1918 by "eating raw onions and drinking grain alcohol".
