M17 helmet unit mark?

Post by reinking71 » Thu Dec 17, 2015 11:03 pm

Picked up a M17 helmet with 12/8 hand written on the underside of the rear rim in about 13mm print. Is this a unit mark or something else?

A friend of mine has a M'18 that does have a unit stamped into the underside of the front visor.
