Without seeing a pic, probably original. There was a myrid of contracters producing literally everything an army needs to fight. I have an original five cell pouch that isn't marked, another that has it's US stamp on a flap, not the belt loop.If the given item met spec, it was accepted. It could be that "RMT Co." made only a short run, then moved to another item, or a component of another item. (Like Singer Sewing Machine Co. M-1911A1s) Another possiblity was that the contract was pulled. (Like Union Switch & Signal M-1911A1s)

I have two five-cell pouches. One is a Hoosier (44?) and the other has no marks whatsoever.
