Default Collector grade 6083880 ?

This rifle does not appear to meet the CMP definition of a collector grade.

Why do you think it doesn't fit the definition "Collector Grade"?

The only thing I see that bothers me is the presence of the saw cut gas cylinder. Some might question the NM marked barrel, can't tell from the pictures if this might have been a type 1 NM rifle as well.

Sometimes I scratch my head and wonder why certain rifles are graded what they are, I even pled my case once, oh well, I am but a minnow in the sea.

I would have to agree with the OP.

So, the CMP has changed the definition before.

Every one of my Garands is a Collector Grade, by my definition.

Never thought of it any other way. As time goes on, they are more collectable. I hope to make to the 100th anv WW2 and see the M1 get the recognition it deserves from the black plastic gunstock crowd cause guns worth owning have wood stocks, as everyone here knows

Looks to me like CMP is marketing it as a Service Grade. I guess any thing collectible about is that the serial number is over 6 million if that means so much to somebody.

They've changed the grade from collector to service grade...

I changed the title to read service grade. Its in the system and was worked as a service grade. Got a little excited when typing the description. I blame fat fingers.
