    Post by Warrior Kiwi on Sat Feb 16, 2013 7:16 am

    Hi, does anyone have any reference pics or info regarding the ISSUED NZ army dogtag sets?

    I have seen both dulled steel and black-painted steel variants in our army and was wondering which is the official type, wiki doesnt seem to help and any of my territorial friends dont have them or if in RF, got black ones in the forms of

    Country (NZ)
    Number
    Initials. Last Name
    Religious Preference
    Blood Type

    Help anyone?

    All are issue, just depends on where they get done.
    As far as im aware there are 6 types.

    Black, stamped
    Sliver, stamped
    Black, pressed
    Silver, pressed
    Black, engraved
    Silver, engraved

    Have been issued all types, with and without silencers.

    The last lot i was issued were the black pressed type(2012)

    There may be more variants, and im sure Bolty and Onward proabably still have the old circle and octagon ones Laughing

    All the ones I've seen in NZ were US type, just so many variations which as 2/1kiwi has pointed out are all issue types at one stage
