At my PD in Calif. we would send firearms to the state Criminal investigation for an attempt to restore the serial number. I sent a 1911 (GI) in and it came back with “ unsuccessful” in raising the number and the pistol had a new number preceded by CII ( Criminal Investigation and Identification).

The normal crossed canon Ordnance acceptance mark was copied by Springfield Armory ( current Business) after the military Springfield Armory was deactivated. Though basically the same there are a number of variations of the acceptance mark through the years.
