    Welcome to the forum, most stamps with letters & numbers are steel batch numbers, but they are normally right by the date/maker name.
    So I think your stamp might be for the owner of the helmet, or the company that might well have bought over 200 helmets putting their stamp on it too identify it as theirs.

    thanks tinlid although it cant be the steel batch number because that is near the date just badly stamped
    recently i had to change the liner draw card it was dry and brittle and falling to pieces so i swapped it with a black shoe lace like my reproduction liner on the dutch mk11 (it came with a reproduction liner and chinstrap)
    some would say it was in dire need of a new liner draw cord.
