Default 066??

I received 2 Service Grade Garands today from CMP, one of them was a SA six digit Ser.# 222XXX and had 066 electropenciled above the serial number. What does that mean?? thanks, JB

The receiver was once a Marine or Navy asset. Pictures of the rifle can tell us more.

O stands for Overhauled in 1966 "66"

Like the others have said, a Marine designation

Marine rebuilds are much sought after. Mostly by Marines but also a unique niche in any collection. One of my IHCs is a Marine rebuild.

It appears.to be a typical CMP mixmaster. The elevation sounds like a weatherhead. Nice example of an early 6 digit with some kind of Marine Corps lineage.
