Question Brandings on Hannoverian's neck

We have a horse with an "H" branded on his left hip, we discovered that means hannoverian, but i'm curious about the "743" on his neck. Can anyone help me out with this?!

I am fairly sure the Hanoverian breed stopped branding the neck in the 1990's (my 1998 mare born, inspected and branded in Germany had no neck brand.. 1992/3 gelding had one). I'm also not totally sure on this but the only horses I can remember who had the neck brand were inspected and branded in Germany..

My mare had her number on her hip, under the "H" brand and I am unsure what exactly it represents. She was eligible for the main studbook, however it was not until we took her for inspection at 7 years old that she was acctually accepted into the studbook as "Hanoverian breeding stock". It may have something to do with approval and branding as a foal and the breeder??

So all I can really guess from that is you have a horse around the age of 18-20 that may or may not be from Germany..

From what I know,
the brand in the neck with numbers is a indification brand.
If a horse has number 20 in its neck and the horse is a bay with no markings,
it is the only non-marked bay horse that can have that number.
But,there can be a grey horse with number 20.
Hthe same number can be used on different horses but the horses can't look like eachother.
