    The number "10" is probably the inventory number for the helmet. If there is a maker's mark it should be on the inside of the dome of the helmet at the top near the vent hole.

    10 would typically be the regiment number, not inventory.

    Wrong. The regiment number always precedes the unit designator. In this case J.P.
