    Default Helmet chin-strap - original?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm slowly trying to get some stuff to complete a relic helmet that I've got recently (see "My very first Geman helmet...Opinions?" thread)
    I saw this chin-strap, but I can't tell if original or a good aged fake.
    I did visit many helmet websites, before asking here...but better make sure to ask I think.
    No factory markings, as far as I can tell...the retaining studs are steel.

    I think? its a chemically aged reproduction Fabe - there seems to be no "softening" of the edges as would happen with time.

    I agree with Dan, looks intentionally and artificially aged.

    The leather also seems too 'thick' also?

    I wouldn't buy based on these photos, and the stitching looks weird.
