Hi All,

I really don't think it's been wrapped up since 1918 (NOTE: corrected statment) if it has a parked finish. ( UPDATE Now discovered some were parked)
The auction is not stating it's NOS, it's a blind buy!
Someone is buying a dream or well off enough to help the CMP with a big gift. It might be preserved in some very expensive grease
I have two - Springfield 1905 & a 1909 Rock Island Armory. They are both in very nice shape. They were both bought from the CMP, when they were released for sale a few years ago.

I hope the buyer is very happy with it,
broom
