M-1 helmet. Heat stamp # 8. Doesn't seem early enough for low number.

This has what appears to be a #8 heat stamp. But, the helmet doesn't seem to be early enough for that low a number. Thoughts?

 

Thanks.

I have 2 helmets with single digits. Both are front seams. One has a #9, the other has a #0 and is a fixed bail. I too believe the stamping was either too light or mis-stamp .The one with the #9 appeared to have been a fixed bail at one time because of the weld marks on it and the swivel bails look hastily put on w/welding on the outside of the base.
