Numbers On USGI Triggers?

I recently purchased a USGI Garand trigger and sear. I noticed there is a number 42 embossed on the right side of the trigger. I inspected my original USGI M14 trigger and realized what I always thought was a surface imperfection was actually the remnants of an embossed number. I can't make out the numbers on the M14 trigger, but does anyone know what the significance of the number 42 is on the Garand trigger?

Just forging numbers. Nothing special.

Springfield Armory stamped forging number into the side of their M14 triggers. 4 and 19 have been observed. One could assume that SA began doing so with M1 triggers.

I always assumed it was 1942, but have no support for that.

I do not believe its the date manufactured as there are to many other random letters/numbers stamped on WWII Garand triggers
