Default WW2 Italian Tent Sections and Ponchos????

I have been looking around at a few Italian camo tent sections and ponchos, I have been looking at a few websites (previously mentioned on the forum), but I still get a little confused as some things seem to contradict others!!
I have been offered a few now which I am told by the sellers are genuine ww2, to be fair I am sure the sellers honestly think they are, but I am not always quite so convinced. For example I was offered a nice looking poncho which seemed to tick a lot of boxes ie brown stripe down middle, stitched eyelets and what seemed to be nice colours, but just before I pulled the trigger to buy it, I noticed it had metal buttons rather than the bakelite type, so I assumed it was late 40's or 50's manufacture... so I didn't buy it. It does seem to be a mine field..

Anyway here are a couple I am again thinking of, sorry for the pictures, it is all I have at the moment.
Can anyone help with these? Interestingly neither have the brown stripe down the middle at the join.

The first (tent section) is very clean and bright, the back has a greyish hue, there is a stamp and it has bakelite buttons.
