Looks like it once was a hybrid but the A-frame rings and auxiliary straps were removed. No telling if it was factory or field made, but apart from that it is a fine original piece.

I also found this: https://www.ebay.de/itm/292800362946
I think this is what your straps looked like before all the modifications were removed again.
There were some period modified cavalry straps, here is a good description of them: http://mp44.nl/equipment/y_belt_cav_1940.htm
It could also be possible that those modifications were made post war with leftover LW/Cav-Y-straps, and given that the one on ebay was made in (then occupied) czechia, maybe they were intended for the post-war czech army before they adopted their own german inspired Y-straps.
Still, it doesn't change the fact that they are original WW2 manufacture german Y-straps at heart. It's just sad that they are so messed with now.

Thank you very much for your opinion!

Maybe someone have another opinion?
