Toe tag

Toe tag

:"For the CSI episode, see Toe Tags (CSI episode)"A toe tag is a piece of cardboard normally attached with string to the big toe of a dead person in a morgue. It is used for identification purposes, allowing the morticians to correctly identify corpses.

However in many places actual toe tags are no longer used but have been replaced by wrist and/or ankle bands which fulfil the same purpose.
