German WWI ID Disc
These are 100% cotton neck cords for WWI German ID discs. The
red/black/white represents German national colors. Other
color combinations represent various states, such
as black/white for Prussia. About any color
combination can be made, as well as plain white.
Color combinations for selected German states:
Note that most combinations can be made in "thick" and "thin" varieties.
Price is the same for either weight.
ordering, please state color combination desired (or your German state) and thick
or thin diameter.
Some representative examples are shown below:
how the neck cord is threaded in the picture below. I found some
original examples done this way. Cords were often simply threaded
in and out of the same side. However, when threaded in a "spiral"
fashion as shown below, the tag lies flatter against the body, and the
tendency for the knot to creep around to the front is greatly reduced.
It is a very simple but clever fix for those issues.
