Question about 5 digit # near washer fluid resevoir

Hi guys, owner of a 91 truck here. Have had it for almost a year now pretty smooth sailing so far but seems like my truck has sprung a small leak. Was cleaning out the engine bay to track down the source (previous owner(s) went a little nuts with the rust prevention methods) and noticed a 5 digit number (1 letter, 4 numbers) hidden under a layer of grime that doesn't correspond with anything in my VIN. It's located at the front of the engine bay near the bracket for the windshield washer fluid reservoir, I'm wondering if its just a part number stamped into the sheet metal or if its supposed to correspond with something. Any help is appreciated, thanks!!

I am pretty sure it is some type of part and/or batch number.

My 1987 Truck has "133414" stamped in the same area.

Many Toyota parts have partial part numbers stamped on them, usually the last five digits, but are almost always all numbers, with a few exceptions.

It appears that the number stamped on my truck does not correspond to the Toyota part number for my Truck or my VIN, so it is just an identifying mark of some kind, probably used by Toyota during production.
