Default Anything special about this RIA 1903?

This rifle was a barn find from the northeast I picked about years ago. To me, it's just been a nice looking example of an RIA in a early C stock. Is it anything more than that? Getting ready to sell it.

One marking has me puzzled is the 1D224 on the buttstock. Just a rack number? And I assume the 4-32 SA barrel is a replacement.

The D28179 number is a drawing number and is on the hand guard.

Yes, tracking on that. Just wondering about the number on the buttstock.

Most likely a rack number.

"1D224" in that location means:
1st. CAV
Troop D
rifle # 224.
This is in this location so it can be read when in the scabbard.

Very interesting. Can you tell me what the source for that info is? Thanks.

I own a lot of "papered" CAV rifles.
They have these markings on their stocks.
