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.
