Good afternoon gents,
Can anyone offer opinions on this chinstrap which I believe is a 1945 patt T1?
The seller states it came out of a carton marked 1942 but that can't be correct can it?
The buckle plate is blackened brass and I think the other parts are steel. Maybe the ferrule on the loose end is also blackened brass.
In hand it appears to be OD3 and in daylight looks an identical shade to that on a 1942 fixed bale M1 in my collection although this one is mint and the one on the helmet is obviously not. The pic makes it look greenish but if you look closely the one on the helmet shows the same tinge.
As I say my thoughts are that this is a 1945 patt T1 so would it be correct for a KW swivel bale?
All opinion is welcome.
