Default Y straps opinion please

Hello, here one of my Y straps that i have always consider over every suspect.
The marking engraved on one arm (R.Z.F.H. 1942) means Reichszentrale für Handwerkslieferungen, a sort of cooperative of little manufacturers like the Lago for the clothing. On every other leather objects i saw, it is present also one or two digits standing the code of the manufacturer inside the cooperative and the letter 'F' in lowercase. In my Y straps there aren't any extra digits and the 'F' is in uppercase. In addition, i noticed a greater width and thikness of the rear arm...
Is there anyone who is familiar with this kind of marking?

I think it is good one.
If We have not informations about the marks, I suggest You to consider the smell of the leather for determinate if the leather is old or new.
