    I have a helmet that is in need of a chin strap, so I bought this one since it was such a low price. it is unmarked, so I was thinking it could be a late war version. could it be post war? even if it is a post war, it was really cheap so I'm not hurt that bad. if any one could shed some light I would really appreciate it. unfortunately these are the only photos I have got, I could post more when it arrives.

    Looks repro...in my opinion. If it smells like leather it is. Real ones have no smell or a slightly musty smell. Original, German straps can push the $200 mark sometimes more for certain markings that go with a certain shell.....LBA Luft early dated etc.....regular ones $100 to $120. You'res looks like a common repro. My 2 cents.

    well I bought it for the same price as a reproduction (17.00) that's why I took a chance on it, so even if it is a repro im not out much. when it arrives I can do the smell test, and post good, quality pictures. and hopefully we can come to a conclusion.

    For $17 don't hold your breath.

    Yep - looks like a lightly aged European repro. Notice how
    the seller has obscured views of the buckle, which is
    a dead give-away.........
