    and again , unfortunately it isn't......

    The endstrap is post war Austrian (which are often seen sold as original)
    - hook has straight stitching, tip of endstrap is not pointed, holes are not raindrop shaped


    Don't worry, you'll get there !!

    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    probably altered to look real, but this definately is a post war austrian endstrap

    Thanks again - I made notes so no worries about anymore questions :-)
    can you elaborate on the straight stitching ?

    p.s looked at your website and now I know what you mean about the stitching !

    Thanks !
