Default Scabbard Mouth with Odd Attachment Strap

I've posted this sword marked Wyatt before but neglected to ask about the unique scabbard mouth with white buff leather strap.
Has anyone seen a similar attachment method on 18th century sword scabbards?

Curious thing, Will.
Could it an implement added later, for lack of the original system, although visibly old; to hang on a sort of 'button' on the belt ... or elsewhere ?

I would suggest that the scabbard is slipped through the mouth of a frog, then stopped and secured on a frog stud. This is a system that has been used into the 20th century and I show a 1957 Sig frog just for convenience. The difference that the scabbard has a scabbard slot for the frog strap.
