Default M1 Carbine early Winchester barrel questions

I have a opportunity to buy a early Winchester barrel that is advertised as NOS...My first question is if this is genuinely NOS will the barrel gauge 0 with a muzzle gauge? What would the original finish look like...bluish/ greenish/ greyish?...should the finish cover the threads? should it be dated? I think it's a late 1942 barrel..Will it have the punch mark for the piston nut retainer or should it come with the piston & nut already installed & punch marked? Or should it not have any punch mark indicating a piston & retaining nut have been installed? Any and all help appreciated.
