BEST OF 1980 - 1990 DOGTAGS

These dog tags were produced for promotion of the album The Best of 1980 - 1990.  An image of Peter Rowan wearing an army helmet was chosen from the U2 archive for the cover of this album, and that set the tone for the promotion of the album.  Many of the items were war themed.  Other than these dogtags, there was also an army helmet promo item, and a green khaki army style shirt.

The dogtags came in a set of two, one saying just "U2" and the other listing "The Best of 1980 - 1990".  Also included is a beaded chain for wearing these tags.  Some of these were packaged within a crate with other promotional items.

These items were produced by Island Records in the UK, but were used for promotion worldwide.
