    In all honesty dont know anything about them,picked them many years ago and they have only just re surfaced.

    I thought to start with that one of the numbers was a WW2 German Rb Nr but more than likely a NATO Stock Number.

    The Austrian ones are quite distinctive with their padded shoulder areas.

    Not too familiar with Czech items I must say and wonder if the 72 is the date?

    Also came across an unissued German type Czech canvas back pack with the separate webbing Y straps(gets bad when my collecting is now so bad that Im finding stuff I never knew I had)

    Gulf,
    the date is 1951. The date is after acceptance stamp (crossed swords). Czechoslovakia army made leather straps till early 50´s. Later than canvas. I have in my collection both dated 1952.
