Engine Block Stamp

Here are some pics of an early production 74 Turbo. Th casting all seems to be inline that it is a 74 block. There is nothing near the starter for a vin. You can see the casting on the block...74 and 10G, which translates to July 10th. It also clearly says on the casting BMW EB. I am guessing the EB is the casting plant or location? There is also a photo of the block where the vin or other should be and it is blank. No appearance that it was ground off or other. My understanding is the car was delivered in early 74, so my guess is that a casting date of July on the block with no vin would have been a warranty replacement. I am going to check for numbers on the exhaust side. I think one of you mentioned near the bell housing.
