Metal ID Discs

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Regarding the early identification discs made from metal.  When they introduced the second disc did they just add a fibre one looped onto ye existing metal one? 

Any pictures would be great!

 

Thanks in Advance,

Adam

This appears to have been done sometimes - such as this example in the AWM:

Seems to be a very Australian thing to do... Does not seem to be a great sample to gather from.
