Default Cossack russian , caucasian belt

Good evening dear members,
I saw the post about the caucasian buckle belts ans I wanted to show you this model.

Really nice but I have a basic ''stupid'' question about the way it was used: how do they attach a kindjal on it ?

A string fixes to the kindjal scabbard then passing through some of the small holes ?

There are many stamps on the pieces ,
Really glad if someone can help for maybe fix the origin translate it .

Best wishes

it looks like .875 silver (84 Zolotniki) with a for me unknown Kokoshnik / silver mark, perhaps 1885 if I read it correct.

Some more info :

but some of our Russian specialists can advise in more detail

They just didn't

Btw this type of belts was used mostly by Armenias, Azerbaijanis some Georgians who lived in tiblisi

Here are some photos of people wearing similar type of belt, I should have photos of people with that same belt but will need some time yo find them
