    Hello René,
    Most of them is correct WWII...sorry to say but the back strap is postwar austrian. Square sewings, buttonholes and the shape of the hook tell the story...
    Thanks

    well I'm a newb, but the straps are in good shape, but I looked again & I guess the back strap is different, but hey I would love to own it.

    Sorry for not being very clear René : by most of them i meant the two front parts, which are correct, but as mentioned the back strap is postwar...

    no, they are uncomplete WWII german Y-straps with added postwar austrian back strap. Most likely added by a collector to complete the set. Postwar austrian back straps are common, as are uncomplete german Y-straps...
