    Well its got a stainless steel rim and presumably has the seam at the front, which makes it around 1942-45 I believe, though there are many M1 enthusiasts here who can give you better info than I can.

    It is a front seam fixed bale M1 with the correct Khaki strap. It was made between 1941 and November 1943 when the swivel bale chin strap attachment point replaced the fixed bale style. If you can provide the entire heat stamp sequence we should be able to identify the manufacturer and the year of manufacture.

    According to the mc Cord dating chart if it can be trusted and the number is 74D would mean its was made February/march 1942.
