TWO HAVE A DOUBLE “D” BUCKLE (ORIGINAL TO POUCH) INSTEAD OF TWISTED WIRE LOOP BUT WILL MOUNT WITH STANDARD Y-STRAPS. I THINK THEY WERE A DUAL PURPOSE MOUNT FOR USE BY OTHER BRANCHES OF SERVICE. HAVE NEVER SEEN THEM BEFORE AND CANNOT FIND THEM IN ANY OF MY BOOKS. BEING IN BLACK LEATHER THEY ARE WWI PERIOD AS THEY WENT TO BROWN IN 1914 AND STAYED BROWN THEREAFTER. THESE WERE NEVER ISSUED OR USED.
