Wouldn't there be a number on the box, as well?

Mistakes do happen. The CMP let very rare rifles slip through their fingers at least twice - they sent an Irwin Pederson as an Inland (apocryphal - a thread from the last Forum that I saw pictures from but never verified), and am M1903 Mark I that did not have the extractor hole milled in the receiver. That one is in my safe!

The bag number does match the rifles serial number but it is no M1-D. Looks like someone failed to install the block when it went thru the process.

So then, did a standard M1 get switched for an M1D and placed in a boxed set?

Only way we would know that is if there were a picture of the box where the serial number is written on it.

The M1D listing has been taken down and the 1903 Mk1 corrected. I hope the M1 can be relisted and the set corrected with scope mount added. Perhaps the custom shop can find the time.

Wouldn't it require a specific barrel swap to work with the block?

Can be done one of two ways.
1.) Barrel is machined and the block is installed on the original barrel and reinstalled. Handguard also needs cut or replaced.
2.) New barrel with the block installed replaces old one and the handguard is either replaced or cut to fit.

NOS barrels with the block are common from around 1952.

Also the pictures for the Model 60 on the auction page #4311 are of the WRA Model 70 that was auctioned today. The pictures on the google photos page show the right rifle.
