Default The Official IHC Serial Numbers Thread

Guys,
I invite anyone that has an IHC (in any configuration) to post it here and I will get it added to the master list.
Please take these listing with a grain of salt. No way to know the history on most of these but as more and more are entered maybe some patterns will start to emerge.
As I find Correct Grade, Collector Grade, or other verifiable Original rifles I will highlight them in Green so they stand out.
Any consecutive serial numbers will be highlighted in Blue
Also have added those IHC rifles that have been identified as having the serial number changed (8 stamped over a 3) in the past for unknown reasons. These actually occupy three lines each. The original serial number before it was modified. The new location with the modified serial number. And finally the rifle that may exist out there with the same serial number. These are highlighted in Yellow.

Collecting the different varieties:
A while back I started a Post on collecting the 9 (now 11) identified different varieties of IHC Garands, but as a simple Post it gets lost in the weeds so I thought I would add a link here in case someone wants to take a look:
http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=250884

IHC Rifles with Over-stamped Serial Numbers:
There have been a number of IHCs found that have had a numeral 3 in the serial number over-stamped with a numeral 8 and since those are being added to this list as they are found, here is a link to that discussion on the forum.
http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=259428

A note from Rolling Thunder for rifles in specific serial blocks:
WANTED: Looking for these IHC Serial Numbers
4461000 to 4471000
4473000 to 4482000
4484000 to 4493000
4627000 to 4634000
4644500 to 4648000 (Probably a Gap Letter)

If you have an IHC in these serial blocks would you be kind enough to send a photo of the serial number and state its heat lot located on the right side of the lower receiver to Rolling Thunder via this Forum email. Just these serial blocks please


Information needed for these lists:

- Receiver Serial Number
- Receiver Drawing Number & Heat Lot
- Heel Stamp Variation
- Barrel Mfg and Barrel Date
- Stock Barrel Channel Date and markings
- Owner name, or User Name, or if privacy is important just list "Forum Member"

In speaking of this list with Dave McClain he recommended that we also include the Receiver Drawing Number and Heat Code in information posted. This extra detail will help a lot in identifying the ranges of the non-IHC made receivers.

Receiver Type vs Serial Number information from Wayne Bradford will help you identify a couple of the more unusual Postage Stamp receivers:

• Arrowhead - (4440001-4441100)
• SA/IHC Postage Stamp - (4441101-4445557)
• IHC/IHC Postage Stamp - (4407001-5197999)
• SA/IHC Gap Letter 1953 - (4637500-4659999)
• SA/IHC Gap Letter 1955 - (5198000-5211244)
• HRA/IHC - (5213034 to 5217010)

Note: Keep in mind that these types of details are still evolving somewhat so if you have a receiver type that falls outside the above ranges, I certainly would like to see it. Once confirmed the range can be adjusted accordingly.

Receiver Heel Stamp Variation KEY to use:
AH=Arrowhead
SA/IHC= SA/IHC Postage Stamp
PS=IHC/IHC Postage Stamp
GPR= Gap Letter
HRA/IHC=HRA IHC Postage Stamp

Got it and a fine-looking rifle it is as well. Wish I had one like it.
