I am going through some things that came down to me thru the passing of family. I have found my grandfather's WW II dog tag. He was in the Persian Gulf command, a quartermaster. I would like to do a framed display of his war portrait and include the dog tag. The problem is that the tag is pretty dirty and discolored. It does not seem to be made of aluminum, It appears to be a bronze maybe. Does anyone know what these tags were made of and have a safe suggestion for cleaning it. Of course I want to be very careful.

Thanks for the web site info
This certainaly looks like mine. I could not believe they were stainless as the tag is discolored so bad. If they are stainless would they be this discolored and how would you clean it? Also I do know that this tag one time had the rubber ring around it - although it deteriorated away years ago. He always said the rubber ring was to keep the tag from burning you in the 100 degree plus heat or the Persian Gulf, but the web info says this rubber was a silencer?
