this style dog tag was ordered by General Order #204 on 12/20/1906:
"An aluminum identification tag, the size of a silver half dollar and of suitable thickness,
stamped with the name, rank, company, regiment, or corps of the wearer, will be worn by each officer and enlisted man
of the Army whenever the field kit is worn, the tag to be suspended from the neck, underneath the clothing, by a cord or
thong passed through a small hole in the tab. It is prescribed as a part of the uniform and when not worn as directed herein
will be habitually kept in the possession of the owner.
The tag will be issued by the Quartermaster's Department gratuitously to enlisted men and at cost price to officers."This order was updated in July 1916 to issue 2 dog tags, one for the body if killed in action and one for record keeping.
then in 1918 it was updated again to include the serviceman's 7 digit serial number.
