Default IHC LMR barrel?

Just noticed the collector grade IHC on the auction site. Looking at the IHC barrel, I don't see the punch mark. I thought the LMR barrels put on IHC rifles, all had a punch mark. Would this be a replacement LMR barrel?

Many early IHC/LMR rifle barrels did not have the punch mark. The punch mark was not applied consistently until early 1954, or about the 4.52M range.

That IHC looks more like a correct grade than a collector. Too many imperfections on the wood and too much finish wear on the metal.
Overall very nice. I like the 4.66 HRA twins better.
Before iTrader removal 105 feedback @ 100% positive.
