    Default Unidentified Steel Pot Markings

    I just recieved a M1 Helmet in the mail. The outside metal steel pot has some strange markings.

    The first are the numbers (912H) located on the inside brim. They look engraved in.

    Next are the numbers (H6703) written on the inside in large, obviously handwritten, black letters
    The (H) looks like it could also be an (A).

    Lastly, the numbers (M-760) very neatly written, almost typed in chalkboard font, on the brim.
    There are a few numbers after the (0) that are illegible.

    If someone could please tell me what these mean, that would be great.

    Thank You for reading!
