    yup looks to be a US WW2 fixed bail M-1 the number P-1603 stamped in it is the initial & part of the service number of the soldier that would have worn it.

    the bail or loop is were the chin strap attaches to the shell early M-1s have a fixed/none moving version & the later M-1 has the swivel/moveable version. in order to give a rough date we'll need the heat stamp number please check out the link to see what this is http://warrelics.eu/forum/us-m1-stee...31/#post288078

    The heat stamp says 330C

    that number gives you a rough manufacture date of November 1942.
