    M1 Garand, Julian number

    I have recently started to do some research on my M1 for possible sale.
    I found that the stock has an OR number stamped on the underside of the stock. From my research the RO and four digit number gives the date of the stock.
    From what I can tell, the stamp was placed there on the 6th of Aug 1952. I believe it to be an IHC stock.
    Can anyone tell me if this Julian stamp enhances the value of the weapon.
    Thanks for any help.

    The Julian date should be stamped inside the barrel channel of the stock not on the bottom of the stock. Pictures would help.
    A correct stock for the rifle would increase the value of the rifle. The condition of the stock also affects value.

      Thanks for the comeback jak, The Julian date is in the barrel channel and the stock is in very good shape. Only one small blemish, no cracks ect. I will have to study up on how to post
      pictures. Again thanks for the come back.

          That is a nice looking stock. If you do decide to sell the rifle, post it for sale on this forum. Take plenty of pictures of the rifle and individual parts. We love pictures.

            A Julian stock will only be correct on an IHC M1 rifle. It will help the value on an IHC--any other maker of rifle--not so much.

              Thanks Jon for the comeback. The only reason I have to think it is a IHC stock is because of a chart on the web, detailing cartouche on stocks. Is there any other way other then the cartouche stamps?

                Can anyone tell me if an M-1 was graded at 80% by the CMP, back in 1989, would it mean that the weapon is 80% "correct"?

                  Post clear, non-blurred pictures looking straight down on the top portion of the stock where the receiver seats.

                    Giby,
                    Does the stock have a DOD stamp or ordnance wheel stamp?
