Default Opinions on set MP40 pouches, all web

These set of all web MP40 pouches were offered to me. Although I saw many pouches in my life, these strange birds are a mystery to me.
Are they the so called early 'Kreta' pouches? Are they post war, repro?
Owner stated he has these for more then 30 years in his collection. I couldn't find any stamps: confused:

Looking forward for your opinions.

Great set for me too!

I have a question: why there is a small metallic button on the bottom of each compartment? (see picture 4)

Thanks!
Michele

Hi,

They seem very early and very similar in the construction with the very early six magazines pouch !

Thanks guys for all the comments
I aquired the set last week and they will find a good place between my other MP 38/40 pouches.
I was wondering; I have a pouch with also metal tips. Its stamped 'dkk'. Is this set also made by this manufacture?
Are the metal tips typical for 'dkk'?

They hold leather reinforcements fixed inside.
