There should be 20 pair of holes located toward the buttoned end of the M1906 Sling. The photo you discovered with the hook on the wrong end was probably a M1903 Sling (3 pair of holes @ button end) 52" inches OAL, or a M1905 Sling (2 pair of holes @ button end) 50" inches OAL.

Colonel Brophy has some info on slings in his Springfield book, but he misidentified several. He list the M1887 Sling as the M1903 Sling and the M1903 Sling as a M1905 Sling.

If you want to number the adjustment holes, I would start my numbering with #1 at the tightest adjustment and go from there.
