SN 1397043. Cal. 30-06. Stellar orig condition Springfield 1903 with proper “SA” marked ordnance bomb proofed bbl, dated “5-39”. U.S. marking discernible but partially obscured by rear sight block base on receiver band. Bolt is electro-penciled with matching SN visible when in the open position. There is a slight gap between the receiver and the stock cutout. Scope is marked “J.UNERTL USMC-SNIPER 2648”. Rear scope mount also marked “J.UNERTL” with patent number on opposite side. Forward scope mount devoid of markings. Stock is marked at base of pistol grip “043” with sans sarif “P” to rear of trigger guard. Vintage leather sling with indiscernible makers mark included. Orig scope carrying case also included, complete with endcap and belt hanger. Scope includes both end caps, hooded sight protector present. PROVENANCE: From High Condition Collection of Discerning U.S. Military Rifle Collector, Offered Without Reserve. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is superb, over 98% dull gray/blue finish just starting to thin at the safety thumb piece and discernible wear at high edges of scope protecting hood. Bolt finish scrubbed to bare metal where SN is eletro-penciled. Forend cap appears to have some pitting discernible under the finish. It is this catalogers opinion that this piece sustained this pitting at the factory prior to assembly and this is the way it was from that time. Scope finish deep lustrous blue. Optics are clear and perfect. Scope rings retain nearly all of a straw color. Forward scope ring screws show evidence of having been turned. Leather sling starting to crack but still serviceable. Stock exhibits very minor and slight handling marks. Bore is near excellent, shiny and bright. Scope case near excellent condition with penciled name on bottom “C.A. RICE”. It is difficult to imagine one could find a finer condition specimen of this highly sought after model. 50908-6 JWK73 (6,000-10,000) C&R – Lot 3067
