Researching this dog tag on a military history website, I found that this version of the military dog tag was first issued at the end of 1967 and is thus known as the Vietnam era tag. That is when they were changed from displaying a military service number to displaying the social security number.
The tag is stamped with the following information"
5**-**-***8 (the entire number is present, but I choose not to print it here)
The meaning of the above info is:
Social Security number
Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail from Arizona. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $2.90.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
