Default Early Y-straps?

What do you guys make of these Y-straps? They have all aluminum hardware, stitched (not riveted) aux. straps, and an a-typical rear hook. The maker's date appears to be 1928.

As mentioned above; postwar, early, East Germany Y-straps.

Try a magnet, chances are the hardware is zinc plated steel. I have an older set with steel hardware, but the auxillary straps have an aluminum rivet.
