Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

it appears to be from the last block of serial numbers assigned to Springfield of the last batch of rifles they made. (Serial number look-up on Fulton Armory's website). Mine's receiver was made in June of 1942, barrel dated 5-55, if I remember correctly. So, theoretically, mine should be worth at least $47,000. Any bids???
