    Default Helmet chin-strap - original?

    Hey Guys - is this chin-strap original?
    I'm trying to find a bit salty one for my non-decal M42 (non-relic, but honest condition) helmet.
    There is a 1942 date and some kind of marking - anyone knows the maker (if original)?



    Thanks - Fabe

    Hi, to me it looks like an artificially aged fake, the black rusting is uniform in it's appearance and the eyelet's show no sign of stretching, they are all perfectly round. For me it is no good. Leon.

    It's an original Chinstrap IMO

    looks to be stamped '' BRUNO WILDMER / Prag 1942 '' ???

    Sorry Admin - I'm on my phone & for some reason I couldn't find my earlier thread - and I've put up more pics here:

    Looks like a fake chinstrap that has been artificially aged IMO.

    I agree that it is bogus... I only say this based upon inspecting the "age." It seems that this strap has been pulled from the ground, then placed in a barn, and then into 35 spider webs, etc, etc... Too much... Overkill IMO... I will happily concede if proved otherwise....
