Chris,

That's an unusual shoulder strap configuration on your bag. I had not seen this. All other ones I have seen have the clips for the removable shoulder strap. Here are my two. I have the navy pattern shoulder straps for both.

Hi, the strap seems to be a homemade/frontmade job. It buttons into the holes of the beltloops. If you unbutton them you can close them and have a regular brotbeutel, or open them and button the strap on.

I am going to display it without the strap... or maybe trade it with the strap as marine is not really my bag.

At dealers in Germany they seem to be just over EUR300, I am not sure if they actually get that money.

I guess they are pretty damn scarce, but that does not always make a premium price...

I apparently screwed up the ad as well offering free shipping I ended up with about 15 bucks after fees, it hurt but I hope the new owner enjoys it I thought those navy straps were rare? It's one of the earliest dated items I've ever owned, anyway whatever.

Cheers
