I have seen this before and I have forgot when, what and why.
It's not a bayonet frog but meant for a tool - spade or axe - which due to the shape of the shaft or handle needs an "open" frog.

Maybe Carl's memory is better than mine

Perhaps Amsfelder is correct, but it appears to be a modification of a German frog for an Sg98/05 bayonet. Possibly done for German service during WW1? Just a guess, it is very unusual.

This is the extremely rare Belgian frog for the FN made Model 30 BAR support bayonet, in use before and during WW2 in the Belgian Army.
It is made from a WW1 German frog of which the top rivets were removed because Belgian belts were larger than German belts.
