A silver metal dog tag with stamped information. Rectangular shape with rounded ends, it has letters stamped deeply into the metal. The tag is bent slightly towards one end. There are small dents and scratches throughout, and signs of wear around the suspension hole. The stamped letters read "BROWN/JAMES E/[social security number]/OPOS/BAPTIST." Also attached to the bead chain by a shorter bead loop is a P38 can opener. Inscribed on one side is "U.S./MALLIN/SHELBY.O." The can opener is roughly rectangular in shape, with a hole on one corner for the suspension chain. There is a raised metal groove running down the length of the rectangle. One side has a small sharp half-moon indentation cut out of the edge. Below this indentation is a hinged, half-moon shaped tooth with a sharp curved upper edge. This section can lay flat against the larger rectangle of metal or swing open. The metal is stained and has some rust spots.
