Price reached to cheap for originals, and to high for fakes...

As others have said fakes or for the reenactor.

If you compare these with known originals things like the poor quality stitching, the short and fat closing straps and the markings applied with a jack hammer will all be apparent.

Default BAD stitching

The 'H'- shaped stitching on the belt loops are a dead give-away (showing they are repros).

Obviousl the ones shown here are fakes, but the H stitching does exist on originals, so it’s not a dead give away.... (the markings are btw )
