Default 109 data plate

I have a smaller rectangular (about 3/4" x 2") data plate that was reportedly taken off the side of a Bf109 as a war souvenir. It is a little beat up. It has the the following on it:
Bauart: Messerschmitt A.G.
Sach-Nr 109 336 G
Werk-Nr. 1111
Hersteller: Wr. Neustadter Flugzeugwerke

I have had this plate, and one from a FW190 for several decades.
As one who has been interested in German WW2 aircraft since the early 1960's, I have some knowledge of the 109 data plates. However, I was wondering if any of LWAG historians on this forum might have access to information of this particular aircraft's war service.
Thanks in advance from the new guy, John Halliday

John,

I happen to collect data/identification plates from Luftwaffe airplanes. The information on the Bf109 plate you describe ties it to a part or (sub)assembly. Unfortunately, that information does not connect the plate to a particular airplane. There were many of these plates on each plane. By comparison, plates marked with a plane's werk number, which may lead to specific historic information, were few, in some cases limited to a single main ID plate.

I would enjoy seeing your Bf109 and Fw190 plates if you are so inclined.

Thanks,
Steve
