If you are looking for a great gift idea, a brass tag may be appropriate. Brass ID tags are perfect for any military enthusiast or history buff. You can have them engraved to make it more personal for the recipient.

Purchasing a Brass Tag Replicate

You can find an original brass tag, worn in actual battle, from auctions, antique stores, websites, or museums. They can be very expensive and hard to find, unfortunately. So, the best alternative is a replicate of the original tags.

You can find a brass tag that looks just like an original from certain stores and websites. Most come with a silver chain so it can be worn around the neck. The tag can be engraved or hand stamped to your preference.

Brass ID tags are typically engraved with war information on one side and personal information on the other side. For instance, if you are purchasing an ID tag from the Civil War, one side may say, "War of 1861." The other side can be hand-stamped with a name, regiment, or branch of service.
