The Official IHC Serial Numbers Thread
 
Guys,
I invite anyone that has an IHC (in any configuration) to post it here and I will get it added to the master list.
Please take these listing with a grain of salt. No way to know the history on most of these but as more and more are entered maybe some patterns will start to emerge.
As I find Correct Grade, Collector Grade, or other verifiable Original rifles I will highlight them in Green so they stand out.

Information needed for the list:

- Receiver Serial Number
- Receiver Drawing Number & Heat Lot
- Heel Stamp Variation
- Barrel Mfg and Barrel Date
- Stock Barrel Channel Date and markings
- Owner name, or User Name, or if privacy is important just list "Forum Member"

In speaking of this list with Dave McClain he recommended that we also include the Receiver Drawing Number and Heat Code in information posted. This extra detail will help a lot in identifying the ranges of the non-IHC made receivers.

Receiver Type vs Serial Number information from Wayne Bradford will help you identify a couple of the more unusual Postage Stamp receivers:

• Arrowhead - (4440001-4441100)
• SA/IHC Postage Stamp - (4441101-4445557)
• IHC/IHC Postage Stamp - (4407001-5197999)
• SA/IHC Gap Letter 1953 - (4637500-4659999)
• SA/IHC Gap Letter 1955 - (5198000-5211244)
• HRA/IHC - (5213034 to 5217010)

Note: Keep in mind that these types of details are still evolving somewhat so if you have a receiver type that falls outside the above ranges, I certainly would like to see it. Once confirmed the range can be adjusted accordingly.

Receiver Heel Stamp Variation KEY to use:
AH=Arrowhead
SA/IHC= SA/IHC Postage Stamp
PS=IHC/IHC Postage Stamp
GPR= Gap Letter
HRA/IHC=HRA IHC Postage Stamp

Got it and a fine-looking rifle it is as well. Wish I had one like it.

Gentlemen,

In discussion and working with other Rob on this, I've stickied this thread as the latest iteration of the IHC Official Serial Numbers, continuing the excellent work of Brutus and wgandy.
Many thanks to Brutus for his work in compiling and starting this collection of data, to wgandy for carrying on the torch, and now Rob, to whom it passes from Wayne.

At first blush, I was going to delete the existing sticky, as the information contained in the charts here captures all the information from there...not to mention, it would still be available for data as we can view deleted threads/posts (much to the chagrin of some characters around here).
However, for those that want to look back on it for reference, it will remain here in the Garand section, just not as a sticky anymore...

Please use this thread to update any IHC information you may have.

Regards,
Rob
