I did some more research and figured someone would be able to verify all the symbols on the barrel shank?

a) 4 point star- 1960 date code symbol for National Match?

b) "T" rifle was "targeted" after assembly

c) "P" rifle was "proof" fired for assembly

d) S A F6535448 Springfield Armory drawing number

e) 9 -54 Barrel mfg Sept 1954

f) A 2138 Steel Batch or Heat Lot Number

It appears the OP Rod is also NM stamped ( a NM part used in regular rebuild also ).

Looking at the black finish on the receiver metal and the markings on the buttstock and pistol grip this rifle is a "Greek return" to the CMP.
