No question 100% original USGI item.  Side note to these grenade pouches, these were sometimes used during the Korean War to carry 30 rd. M1 Carbine magazines. There was a shortage of the purpose made 30 rd. carbine magazine pockets and these grenade pouches can hold two magazines in each "pocket' or "cell" for a total of six magazines.  If you have access to some 30 rd. carbine magazines you can give it a try just to see.
