    Looks like post war/reenactor stuff. The Y-straps are post war with the cloth reinforcements I think but hard to tell from the photo.

    Y-Straps appear to be Bundeswehr type. This looks like a typical 1980s era re-enactor grouping - before stricter standards were voluntarily adopted by folks in the hobby. Large amounts of Spanish canisters, BW straps and various post war items circulated until original or reproduction items began to replace them. The marking on the gas mask looks like it was done by a re-enactor during that time period.

    Hello,
    Some perfectly genuine WWII german buttons for canteens don't have it stamped on them...
    Thanks
