Default M1 Carbine Recoil Plate Identification

Guys, I would appreciate some help here. I have a recoil plate I can’t identify. It has markings of “LJ”, and the Ray Larson book makes no mention of an “LJ” stamp.

My guess is its WWII because as you can see from the pictures its has a rough finished like a Winchester. The closest stamp would be “LN” for National postal meter.

Please take a look and I would appreciate your comments.

Couple theories, but no proof

I think I'd take Bill Ricca's contract research as proof that J Jewell was contracted to supply WWII replacement stocks. Jewell not being a metal parts supplier used L to supply recoil plates.
Was L in LJ Lyman? We don't know.
Was L in LJ the same maker that supplied the LN recoil plates? Again we don't know.
We do know that in the Milsurps link provided Bill Ricca shows a WWII spare parts contract for Jewell to supply Complete Stock Assemblies during the WWII time frame.

These are the currently known facts.

Default Thanks

I appreciate everyone's feedback. Even after all these years, some mysteries remain. Due to the rough finish, I do believe in some fashion its a WWII part.

There is always hope some documentation will show up in the future.

Regards.

Larry
