    Post war Czech. The pebbled leather gives it away.

    They are original Y straps, so the seller is right, but they are not German Y straps, not even wwII. Like Dan said thay are Czech post-war Y straps, but indeed original ones.
    The colour, material and the shape of the D rings and buckles tell they are not German war period.

    Partisan have a look at this website there is some very good information regarding Y-straps (Koppeltragegestell) and other German TR era field gear and it is owned and run by one of are own (MP44tom) you will find the information accurate and very helpful in your search for an original set.
