I agree with Tom. The Zelt straps are strange.....loops too close to the buckles. The redish "rust stains" also bother me....they look artfully applied (present on every hardware location, even though the hardware itself has variable degrees of corrosion). The eBay seller wants a lot for this ($715 starting bid). I suspect it's an aged repro.

Ref. original example attached.

Whole webbing in the A-frame which staretd this thread is legi, german, so IMO doesn't look like repro.
IMO might have been repaired ( added the straps or at least repaired ).
