The buttplate could be one of the following:

1) a pre-1910

2) one made during the WWI-period (1917-1920)

3) a Remington made during the 1941-42 period - this variety would be marked with an "R" on the inside.

I'd be careful to match the lower band with the rest of the parts. a NOS lower band is quite a bit more expensive than a used one.
