    Default MP5 40rd Mags marked "ID", aftermarket or factory?

    Hello, I thought I knew about all the various factory and aftermarket 40rd mags, but here is one that Ive never seen. It is marked "ID" to mimic a real HK date coded mag. But I highly doubt that's what this is. I am fairly certain the only HK factory MP5 40rd mags were made for an Iranian contract and are not marked as such.
    Calling @AGG or other wise ones...what do you make of this maker/mag, any idea?

    The font does not appear to be HK--- the only "factory" (HK) 40-round magazines that I have seen were marked:

    MP5 HK/ 5/74
    HK MP 5 with “#####” stamped through/ 8/74
    MP5 HK/ 2/79

    But I am not familiar with this font.
