Make and model of car might bring forward some responses. Some car manufacturers did stamp their springs and some also bought in springs from specialist makers- they would sometime have identification numbers stamped on to one or more leaves.

If you Google that part number under images, it comes up with parts pdf's for Austin 7..... see here:

They are attached to a 1930's Wolsely hornet rear axle so I am assuming they are wolsely stampings
