One Way to Attach a Scabbard to a Plaque Belt

Here the scabbard is attached to a plaque belt by at least one short strap, shown here in close-up. Here's another example.

I believe there was a second strap that attached to the plaque belt behind the body, where it would be hidden in these views. A second strap would allow the sword to hang at a convenient angle, and without it the sword would hang inconveniently far forward of the hips, and the tip of the scabbard would drag on the ground in both examples.
