Best guess is it missed the rebuild program some how, it has a 1959 maintenance tag and most of the maintenance tags I have seen are sixty tags same as receiver markings. Rifle could have been in an armory somewhere other that Albany, GA or Barstow, CA. Only a guess....

I find it fascinating that a rifle with a serial marked tag managed to keep it's tag for 54+ years.

Last time I was there for opening I arrived 45 minutes before the door was unlocked and was fifth in line. I got to meet and talk with some forum members while I was waiting so the time passed quickly.

I picked up a Garand earlier this year with a USMC hang tag dated 1965. There was a Smith Corona 1903A3 there last time I was there with a USGI hang tag that was so old all the printed ink had faded. They definitely are there - just luck of the store.

I usually arrive at about 07:00 local time (as I have to dodge traffic on the way out of Atlanta), and end up being first or second in line on those days I've made the trip.

I'd be an hour early if you can stand it. If people get there before you ask what everyone is shopping for. Since you are a Marine vet, maybe they'll defer to you. Last Saturday I let the guy looking for a 1903 scoot in front of me because i'd met my limit of one.

Posted below is a pic of a similar tag that Tom sent me. I have permission to share.

This is the inspection tag that was on my Garand.
