Scott is correct. It's an importer's mark in front of the slide stop. The mark on the triggerguard was one of Ithaca's internal QC inspector's marks that they implemented while trying to improve their manufacturing process later in the war.

I'm guessing it remained overseas after WW2 and was later imported before Clinton banned these guns from coming back to the USA.
