    Default US M1 chinstrap

    Hi guys, I am not sure about this strap. It has the uc stamp but seems strange that some of the nits are brown when the buckle is green. Not sure what to say about the leather either. Please let me know what you think

    Cheers

    Looks ok to me, too. Is the green buckle marked with a patent number?

    It's absolutely fine. Green and brown hardware is nothing to worry about.

    ps
    It's become a very expensive piece of kit to obtain these days. Prices are getting insane!
