    I know the one with the white line on the back has the number of 073 but the other does not due to a repaint at some point (I think) I'll take more pictures within the hour

    They could be late war M1's ,if they are rear seam. If they are US (the heat stamp will prove this) this could date them around Nov 1944-Aug 1945.
