The Buckle on the Chinstrap is a Czech Reproduction and so is the Chinstrap No Such Nbr Exists
Most German Military Chinstrap Buckles are More Defined
Meaning thinner and Slimmer some were sand blasted and some were painted
the Materials used were Aluminum and Steel and Machine Stamped.
you need to Research German Chinstraps and Buckles at German Helmets.com to see the difference
