"Mystery" knife

This month we feature an unknown M3 type knife with aluminum grips. The handle is stamped US and XP we would assume for United States and Experimental. That's just too convenient but it is what it is. The knife has the old style M3 type blade with the 90 degree backcut and is Parkerized. The aluminum handles are pinned in place with an integral thong hole at the rear. Anyone known who made it and when? Proof?
