Front stamped Lagercommandantur and Buchenwald.
Oval – very light hard metal, which has become almost blue/grey over time.
Two holes for chord so the tag could be worn.. clearly they were identification tags.. but quite what their purpose was we have no idea.. as research is very limited.. and not often discussed.
 Buchenwald concentration camp (German: Konzentrationslager (KZ) Buchenwald, IPA: in English: beech forest) was a German Nazi concentration camp established on the Ettersberg (Etter Mountain) near Weimar, Germany, in July 1937, one of the first and the largest of the concentration camps on German soil, following Dachau's opening just over four years earlier.
Prisoners from all over Europe and the Soviet Union—Jews, non-Jewish Poles and other Slavs, the mentally ill and physically-disabled from birth defects, religious and political prisoners, Roma and Sinti, Freemasons, Jehovah's Witnesses (then called Bible Students), criminals, homosexuals, and prisoners of war — worked primarily as forced labour in local armaments factories.
