I received this M1 shell as a freebye long time ago. Is a rear seam swivel bales, on the inside 4 black ink stamps reads "Control 687"

Major Rank insignia is welded on front, 91st ID Emblems are painted in bright green enamel on both sides.

I had a DUTCH M1 with the markings like that inside , it could be a foreign made shell with US insignia added?

 

maybe an officer in the 91st Inf div customized it?

In December 1946, the 91st was reactivated at the Presidio of San Francisco as part of the U.S. Army Reserve. In 1959, the division was reorganized and redesignated as the 91st Division (Training).
