I think that it is probably genuine - I do like the two sites that you mentioned here - marvellous - thanks for showing us them. The one on the Identity discs is awesum - I had never seen that and thought that they only had the fibre discs - well its all part of the learning curve - with all this new learning I might be a geniarse by the time I am dead.
Now the bad news is that I had one of those stainless steel I.D. tags and thought it was a modern bit of junk so I … need I say more other than to add that it no longer exists!

Next time try the website detailed here. They recover ephemera and medals to owners. But that’s a bit of integrity to admit your faux pas. If you do recall it or took a photo, it can still form a portion of a family history or assist someone…https://medalsreunitednz.co.nz/

Yes I am aware of the medals reunited site as I am seeking three sets of family ones myself.
When I got something that was stainless steel with no similarity to anything akin to military I.D. tags that I know then I assumed it was a modern tag of some sort…I think I thought it may have been a kids play tag…or did I think…often I don’t think. That comes with the territory. Candidate for lead roll in the ‘Walking Dead’ or ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ I am actually wondering if it might still exist in one of my discard boxes. Sometimes when I throw things away then its not in the rubbish bin but rather just ‘gets thrown away’ as in the heaps of ‘discards’ - for example I have discarded windmill and stationary motors complete and in bits all around the yard, big old ammunition cases (WWII) full of heaven knows what out in the sheds. All I know is that I threw it away or otherwise disposed of it…but it could still be here.
