Several unknown or conflicting entries. 
The "square" movement symbol entry suggests a 1945 movement?- if we consider this a correct entry. I think it's an mistaken entry.  
I had thought the current movement serial number entry (573M3P) was possibly the case serial number, but it doesn't look like what's on the outside case back closeup below:

The current case serial number entry (2582) must have come from the inside case back? 
I'm not sure how the date of 1967 was determined.
The jewel count listed for the movement is a part of the possible First Lady ID, as is the production date of the watch.  As entered, the 17 jewel movement is from 1945 at the latest.

Pictures of the inside case back and movement are needed for me to vote.
 Owner says they cna enter more info after Jan 20th.

M7 on the Caseback

004393 appears to be the Case seriel number - 2582 inside would be the Case reference number.

Thanks Mark- I couldn't "see" the M7- but now I do.  I agree with your observations on what the other info probably is .......but still don't know what it is I'm ID'ing.  If I'm just ID'ing the case from the one front shot, the lugs are not visible in that photo. We may have more info/pics on Jan 20th.
