Great addition to your collection Steve! I love the little eagle heads on the arms of the lyre.

The Musicmeister straps are quite rare as only one man at a time would wear these straps .

Very nice Steve, you must have one of or the largest collections of these musician straps. The quality of the workmanship is exceptional.

Thanks Brian .
I try and pick them up when I can
but there are other collectors after them also
there were 2 pairs in that same Kube auction that
I bid on but lost the bids
One pair was Bavarian I R 2 " Crown Prince "
