Several years ago I purchased an Inland Carbine in the 30K serial number range.  Only component I retained was the complete trigger housing.  All parts appear correct; Type I housing, Type I hammer, Type I sear, Type I Inland safety, Type I magazine catch, Type I 22 coil hammer spring, etc.  My question is the trigger that was included is completely unmarked.  It does have a single hardness test punch on the right hand surface.  Very interested to know if anyone else has experienced an unmarked trigger on an early Inland Carbine?

I haven't seen a unmarked early Inland trigger but sure wouldn't doubt there are some out there.. especially early ones.
I have pulled 2 RMC triggers from the wrap that were unmarked.

Maybe best you can do is roam thru some early Inland COM to see if any others were reported like yours.
Also try comparing the machining on yours to other Inland triggers,

Good Luck,

Look at the profile of the trigger where the sear engages. Is it different to another if you have one on hand?

Is it a type one housing with narrow wall?
What is the hammer marking?

Profile of trigger near sear engagement point is same as my other triggers, I don't think it is a Type I. TH is narrow wall, double bevels with early/ larger Inland stamp.  Type I Hammer is marked with ordnance bomb and H in a shield.
