Default Packing slip from Rock Island arsenal

I have the packing slip from Rock Island arsenal dated 6-20-47 for 10 rifles, U.S. cal. .30, M-1903.
Serial numbers of rifles
Sprig.
1470678, 1477564, 707694, 1003466, 827017, 1495803.
RIA
353244, 356668
Rem.
3227319
3217907
These rifles were sent to a local American Legion post. The post disbanded several years ago and I returned these rifles to the Army.
If one of you have received one of these through the CMP I will send you the packing list. I think it would be a neat little piece of history to go along with the rifle.

My Rock Island is within 200 of 353244. So close, but not a match.

Went back and pulled it out for a quick look! Now I remember why I was saving this until retirement! GREAT MR/TR numbers and a 1944 barrel - ought to be a seriously good firearm after cleaning the bore.
