Default New 2 Me 1917 Artillary All Numbers Match?

All Numbers Match but thier is no # on the Mmagazine base, Toggle Link pin or the grips, is this normal?
The # on the firing pin has one didget lower than the other It is a 20 that looks like this: 2

See below pec.

Also as I will be using it as a shooter Should the firing pin have groves ground into it or be replaced with one with the three groves?

The toggle pin should not be numbered, as that was a requirement in the 1930's.

The magazine would be numbered.

The grips, I am not sure about.

Yes, The grips should be numbered and the fireing pin is incorrect. It should not be fluted. The fluted pin is preferable for shooting.
