    Some information from SRS concerning early serial numbers (nothing on 1601 ?)

      Pretty interesting . You can see where Springfield Armory scrubbed the last three numbers and changed them . The last two are real evident as to have been 70 .

        Paul, I have some data on s/n 1605, it was a gas trap restoration and sold for $9775.00 on 04-15-05 from Rock Island Auction. It had a electric pencil rebuld mark on the receiver leg. The restoration is a mix of original and repro parts. The gas cylinder, barrel, keystone springs and rear sight parts are repro. They state that the SA SPG stock is original but had the cartouche restamped. While the operating rod is original -0 top marked it has the relief cut (should be weld seam).

        There are other rifles around in this 1600 serial range

          Paul, I found a record of s/n 1670 (also 1669, 1670, 1671. 1672 and 1673) Serial number 1670 on 07-16-38 Co E 29th Inf inspected

          You are correct about 1601, looks to be restamped.

          CMP Auction has sold 1622 and 1628

              I would not bid on it with the altered serial number. Some guys just like to collect low numbers, I do on certain rifles, but not M1's.

              One of the best and less expensive gas trap restorations is something in the high forty thousand serial range

                It doesn't look scrubbed to me. All meat is there so I am thinking it was a mistake when someone light pressed it but stopped realizing they had a serial number on it. Talking and not paying attention most probably. Remember they were only human and were not collecting. Rick B

                EDITED because after I lo‚Äčoked again I notice the area is lower. Strange indeed.

                  Thanks Robert and Rick!!
                  Looks like CMPUser 7404 is still the high bidder, and hope whoever gets it will post some more detailed photos here.

                    My earliest receiver is 6193. I built it into a rifle with cool parts from various times to the end of the war. I call it my birthday rifle because we were both born almost the same time in December 1938. Does SRS have anything to say about that number?
