Default WW1 British Tank Splatter Mask

This is not my area of collecting...

Could some of the experts look at the pictures and give me some opinions?

Thanks in advance

Mike

Default Spatter Mask;

Ive noticed these same original looking masks on EB (about 1 a month for sale) for the last 2 years. Mostly by one seller (SM) but several others in GB also. Most originals I've seen have a light colored leather on the back side and the cotton straps are "X" stitched at the swivel loops. Close but I think these are well aged repos. I've noticed the bidding prices are also dropping on these as time goes on. I'd like to hear some other informed opinons also.

Slade has the right of it: these are being reproduced in considerable numbers and showing up for sale regularly now. But only in the last couple years. So... could be genuine but I'd save my money.

If orifginal, its in wonderful shape!
