Default Wasn't there a X marked M1 receiver sold at auction lately?

Hey didn't I just see a post a couple weeks ago that the cmp auctioned off a m1 receiver that had been scrubbed of the serial and been struck with an X serial number?

If I did, can you post a link to it please? I want to see it.

I do not get the significance of it, X for experimental?

A Bargain nonetheless.

One of my Carbines in the 5,500,000 range was a serial over run with Winchester, the serial was followed with a - X suffex.

I don't know if it was everyone. But I have a mention in a doc that assigned X to the ranges of duplicate serials.

For instance there were 18 duplicate IHC Garand receivers sent to the Marines in the 50's. They wrote Ordnance and ordnance told them to renumber them to the X4.1 million range.
