    Hi guys

    first of all, the end strap is post war Austrian (so not correct)

    The rest of the Y straps look ok, however, I do find the maker mark somewhat curious..... mostly the late war ones are RB numbered....
    I've seen them with maker marks like this until 42 but not later....

    The hooks are ok for late war Y-straps, but the aux. straps rings and buckle do look aluminium....

    The stitching at the aux. straps is also consistent with late war ones...

    So no final verdict from me, although I do tend to say correct ones (apart from the end-strap that is)

    Great info thank you.

    The post war end straps are easy to spot with the squared off stiching over the buckle.. WW2 production stitching is a half rounded over the buckle. Its amazing how many Y strap sets have the small end strap missing or replaced with a post war end.

    Probably because they sell sooooooo much better with end strap (even with incorrect, post war ones )
