The dog tag or 'Erkennungsmarke' shows normal signs of wear. The bataillon was formed in August 1939 in Hamburg-Harburg. It fell under Division 160. It trained and delivered soldiers for different Pionier, Panzer Pionier, Stellungsbau-Rahmen-Bataillone and Einweisungs-Abteilungen.
The 'A' stands for the soldier's bloodtype.
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.
