No expert but I would say the pouches are not good...

Hello gents,
I just came across these pouches which are IMO genuine.

Anyway as I am far from being expert on this field, I´d like to ask you for your judgement.

Thank you very much for any input

To me the pouch is fake. The markings are terrible. While the leather loops on the back look good, the front pieces do not.

At first glace, looks good, but the front straps are definately not good. cosntruction , back loops, hook d-ring and fron loops, cloth and construction looks right. But front straps definately not. IMO quite good repro or orginal with replaced front straps.

IMO a Original pouch, with replaced front straps. Here is the other side, look at the difference in closing straps: https://fjm44.com/product/nice-early-mp40-pouch/
