    Default unmarked y straps are they common?

    I was looking over these y straps that appear to have no markings to speak of. These look good to me with the only questionable observation being the stitching on the upper d rings. Most straps I see have a middle row of stitching for strength. Do these look good to you folks?

    Hello,
    They're OK...no problem with the lack of the third stitching for the D-rings...
    Thanks

    No problems with this one.... unmarked Y-straps are encountered a lot....

    Also the stitching is no problem.... there were many many ways of attaching the D-Rings, probably all manufacturer variations....

    Here an example.....



    and a lot of other variations from my collection

    Hello Tom,
    No i didn't mean cavalry Y-straps with vertical D-rings, but unissued early type lightweight Y-straps that were factory modified and had the usual D-rings and auxiliary straps added then that were issued as normal infantry Y-straps....they're quite scarce now as not many were produced...
    Thanks
