Men's Silver Dog Tag Specifications

If it's not hallmarked, it may lack weight ...
 
Before purchasing any silver dog tag we strongly recommend checking specifications: length, width, weight and whether or not it has a hallmark. No other dog tags are made to our specification. Our 52mm long, large-size silver dog tag is the same length and width as the US army dog tag and, without being too heavy, feels just the right weight.
 
Our 35mm silver disc tag is the same diameter as the UK Armed Forces dog tag disc and is also appropriately weighty: not too heavy, not too light. Our smaller US army tag is 3/4 the size of the large US army dog tag but still the same thickness so it also feels appropriately weighted.
 
If a silver tag is not hallmarked then that means the weight is less than 7.78g. If it's over this weight then under UK law, it must be hallmarked.
