Checking with Charlie Whites web site. A pre A had a different belt. Yours look like late A belts. excellent match on the webbing but the buckles had nothing
on them.

Pre-A cars didn't come with seatbeats from the factory as far as I know. So "authentic" would be none. =)

Certainly those look nice though, though definitely later webbing and buckles!

Sometimes owners would install aftermarket seat belts on their cars. I've seen ones from Rupert Parachute company here in the USA. Other brands in Europe. In the 1950s, it was mostly aircraft companies who made these belts for installation into cars, as car seat belts were not widespread yet. I think anything period would be good. New webbing obviously.
