Default T handle shovel

I just aquired a T handle shovel. My concern is how to ID it, as it is knee deep in old paint. Should I strip it down to find markings? I've looked around and all these look pretty much the same to me. I don't think its USMC, as it doesn't have the reinforced piece on the back of the shovel head. So, strip it or no??

They never look new or original after stripping. But, if you’re not happy as is take it off. The stamping is usually near the bottom edge, away from the point of the blade.

Thanks, but can’t see anything there. If there is anything on it, it’s under paint.
