    I would say NO - it looks oiled and worn but the tip is in excellent condition and would be the first part to show signs of wear

    I actually like most of it but the stamp looks iffy to me. I would also pass.

    I must admit i like it as well, but there is that very well defined makers mark that looks too new, however the stamping was done prior to the holes being made, which could be a good sign

    The buckle end I'm certain is original. The long end looks okay also, but I'm less sure of it. The good thing about chinstraps is they have a distinct smell and feel once in hand, so fairly easy to confirm an original. Make sure the seller offers a refund just in case, if you decide to go for it.

    The long strap looks strangely thick and too short. But the pins look original and so does the buckle end. I would wait for more opinions.
