WW2 German Luftwaffe Typenschild Aircraft Data Plate #3 – Do217 RARE


1 in stock



You are bidding on an EXTREMELY RARE and 100% original Do-217 Data Tag, from a downed Do-217!  This was collected by an RAF Intelligence Officer who was stationed in Italy during the war, however I do not have any further history.


This type of data plates were located directly on the control surfaces and fuselage of the Do217.  They indicated the type, manufacture, and werk number of the item.


Made of aluminum or zinc, this data tag is in FANTASTIC condition.  There are some slight scratches, marks, wear, and corrosion, however it is still quite solid.  The entire tag is approx. 1″ x 1.5″ in size, and is the main identifying tag for the fuselage.  Made by Dornier, the markings indicated are:



Gerat Nr. 217.

Werk Nr. 0525_



This was one of the data plates found in the famous RAF Kenley dig back in the 1980’s.  A VERY RARE item which would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
