The dog tag or 'Erkennungsmarke' shows normal signs of wear. The bataillon was formed in October 1939 in Karlsruhe out of the Ersatz-Kompanie für MG(s) 55. The bataillon trained and supplied soldiers for Fla-Bataillon 55
A Stammkompanie was a unit that trained the soldiers. Often the soldiers of this kompanie were soldiers who had frontline experience and/or where no longer fully usable on the front due to injuries. Of course this changed later in the war and they also where put into action as there was a shortage of (front)soldiers.
The 'B' on both parts of the tag stands for the soldier's bloodtype. 
Hard to find tag.
