I removed two, dry pieces of duct tape, (what I believe to have been some of the first ever sold...lol), from the strap, near the buckle. It attests to the age and patina of this unique item. The olive colored neck-rest is rubber and the strap is grey with a rust hue from the aged leather areas, as well. Without opening the buckle, this strap measures 37" long with another 3-4" folded underneath the loop near the buckle. My research leads me to believe its age is 1950's or, perhaps, older. "Made in Germany" on the strap can be seen in photo #3. A compliment to other original camera accessories.
If repurposing is your desire, envision this strap, cut and glued to a picture frame or as several trendy bracelets or...let your imagination wander! Enjoy!
