I have never seen a hanger like this on any AK47 scabbard from any source. To me it appears to be a hand made fantasy item. The design and construction are impractical for use. The riveted on belt loop strap(?) would put the wrong stress on the rivets. The same goes for the hilt loop riveted to the outside putting stress on the rivet. Perhaps someone's leather craft project? Looks very neat with all the corners beveled, etc., but very impractical and illogical.
