100202 sold on CMP Auction in 2017, a very nice receiver.
https://cmpauction.thecmp.org/detail...ice-WRA-100202

The one before that, 100038, sold for $4001 in April 2014. (don't think the auction link works anymore)

Nice cadence they have going every three years, just realized that. Will be interesting to see how this ends.

Link to an article about the WRA Ed. Contract Garands.

Thanks for those links, I hadn’t seen the one from 2017. But I was aware of the one before it. You didn’t mention what seemed off about the barrel. I’m interested in what you noticed.

The receiver is an Educational Order in serial number only. Do we all assume the first 500, 100001 to 100500 were made in strict serial number order, tested, accepted and delivered? From Winchester?? This is not close to logical reality.

One item is interesting: There is no drawing number on the receiver side.

Since when do we all take those descriptions on the CMP auctions seriously? Look at the IHC Type 2 NM and the SA 4302461 TYpe 1 NM descriptions. Really?

So what to you says the IHC isn't a NM rifle?

Default educational

I once owned WRA 100883..education..who knows, but I never tried to restore it and it sat for years as a nice desk ornament. DHM is absolutely correct in his statement concerning assembly in numerical order. Was down visiting CMP South 8-10 years ago, and I was talking to Floyd and asked him a question concerning early WRA trigger housings. He then walked over 5 feet to his right to a filing cabinet with about 10 narrow draws. Pulled one open and it was completely full of original early and late WRA complete groups. Then another draw with complete early and late WRA rear sights complete including spanner nut and checkered. A couple more and I was convinced he had squirreled away just about every rare part they found. As to the Auction WRA.....I am completely convinced that rifle was found basically original with a couple parts added and then the stock. Original Education Order would be worth more than a similar condition mid-late GT. IMHO of course. I guess it hits north of 8K. C

This one is at $7601 now, I will be surprised if it doesn't go over $10K. Last I looked there appeared to be 2 or possibly 3 bidders running it up, yep I bid $1 just to snoop on the bidding.

once you buy it you can look for a no trap WRA RS stock, keystone & comp spring, numbered (inside) rear hand guard and a B8875-0 bullet guide like s/n 100180 has inside

Yeah, and darn near double the price of the rifle for those parts lol. That rifle has some very cool old pieces but for me, just missing too much to justify the price. Of course to each their own. Regardless it will make a very cool piece to someone's collection.
