6/24/19 - This is an original WW2 era leather strap for a K98 rifle. The strap has no markings or stamps on the leather or metal clasps. However, there is a faint stamp on the rear of the stud fastener. "AqU WIEN??" The leather is soft but completely in tact with no notable flaws. Some of the original herring bone texture is still visible near the stud holes. The stitching is all original as well without issues. Guaranteed original.
