    It is original but the lid and pot are not matching. Need better pictures of the strap to say anything about it.

    It looks to be original, I don't know about the belt though. I'm by no means an expert in anything and I only own one. Better wait for more opinions.

    As stated, an original mismatched mess-kit, can't comment on the strap...In the field, often one man would be sent off with a load of canteens and/or mess-kits of his fellows to be filled/washed...mix-ups were bound to occur...just one possible scenario to explain the mismatching numbers on the mess-kit lid/body...
