Default Virgin barrel ID help

I picked up a hodge-podge of parts in a box that I had to buy in order to get a 3/6 Yugo folder for a Tabuk build. In the box was what was supposed to be part of a M70AB1 kit and included a virgin non CL barrel. I am not familiar with builds and US parts so could someone shed some light on what brand of barrel this is?

The only proof marks I can find is a M close to the FSB journal. I think it is for a Yugo M70 since the handguard retainer cut is further forward than an AKM. Like I said though, not being familiar with actually building rifles, the breach of the barrel will slide easily into the RSB of what I know is a front trunnion of a M70AB1. Is this supposed to happen and what is the brand?

None of my yugo virgin barrels had that. No other markings?

My m70ab2 barrel has that mark. From the discussion on it, I gathered that it's a US barrel. Here's the link.

I don’t think the “E” is the same as the “M” on my barrel. Obviously two different numbers. Any ideas?

The E is not an M and obviously TWO DIFFERENT numbers. I guess I need reschooling or tooling to follow. But by all means, please continue.
