The dog tag or 'Erkennungsmarke' shows normal signs of wear. It belonged to a soldier who served in Stammbatterie Artillerie Ersatz Abteilung 5. The abteilung was formed in Augsut of 1939 in Ulm an der Donou. It trained and delivered soldiers for Artillerie Abteilung 671 and 7 different Artillerie Regiments. In Juli 1941 the abteilung moved to Besancon in France. 
A Stammkompanie was a unit that trained the soldiers. Often the soldier of this kompanie were soldiers who had frontline experience, but no longer were fully usable at the front due to injuries. Of course this changed later in the war as there was a shortage of (front)soldiers and where mobilized also.
The 'O' on both parts of the tag stands for the bloodtype of the soldier.
