Default SA X1010 Receiver on CMP Auction?

Any thoughts/ideas on what appears to be a mid 1941 SA receiver, with a serial # of X1010? The X1010 seems to be a restamp of some type. (CMP Auction Listing #5023)

I'm stumped....but that's a fairly low threshold for me.

George,

It's a 'dumping ground' for stolen, lost or recovered receivers during earlier M1 production. While rare, there are others numbered right in this small range. The "X" is just like a letter added to the duplicate SA/WRA serials to prevent duplication.

Others observed have similar revision numbers and have generally corresponding heat lots.

Thanks RT, for the information. It's not clear from the auction photo's or text if this actually a serviceable / in spec receiver, or potentially an expensive but interesting paperweight. High bid is already over $1000.....

It is a scrubbed receiver from the 200,000 serial range. You can clearly see the ground off area. Rick B

-9 drawing revision also. So good call on the 200k range.
