MT 500
C701 FAH
193205 - looks like it has been done by hand
000610 - the 10 is slightly offset

Q1. What does this tell me about the provenance of the machine?
Q2. Who do I write to for the military records?

Probably was done by hand; small manyfacturers at that time would not have had mechanical VIN stamping machines.
You should see my vin plate! It looks like it was stamped in the dark wearing welding goggles!
