    could be a latvian repro as it looks very similar to one i have. appears to be aged.

    Looks ok, but i am 50-50 on this. I have a original, and maker marks/date stamps have worn off. I will get my chin strap and compare them. See if i can find something.

    Regards, Lars

    Compared to mine, the buckle looks different.

    Is that one on eBay? If it is listed as being from Latvia or any of those surrounding countries, than I would pass. They make fakes out the arse and sell them as originals.

    Thanks a bunch for all your replies. This one was for sale on ebay and I made a pass on it.

    The seller guarantee of the originality and with almost 2000 feedbacks and 99,8 % positive I thought the strap had a good chance. Once again it is proved that ebay is a danger place to trade especially if your eyes donít have that much of experience yet.

    Thank you I have both 1938 liner and helmet to go with it. Just some separate pics of the strap. The leather in the liner is unfortunately missing
