Thanks for telling me where to look, that was simple. I just had to open the box! I still have my rifle sitting as new in the box, it is just so darn pretty I can't bring myself to get it out and shoot it, or for that matter do anything with it. The walnut stock is so sweet, and smells so good, many times I have been tempted to give it a good rubdown and a nice drink with some boiled linseed oil, but I hate to spoil the perfection of how it looks like it was just made yesterday. I guess that makes it a "pristine" example? Am I weird? I think so. But that is part of being a collector. I have had several M-1's over the years to serve as my "shooters", always trading or selling to try and improve my position by condition, maker (SA, Armscorp) or age (lower serial number). Thought I had hit the jackpot when I added 106 to the rack, only to find out later that my "shooter" is a Devine, now what do I do?
Green and white box, contents as you stated.
Serial number 69860

Hope you can use this info. Looks like it falls right into the data you have already compiled. If there is anything else I can help (not that you need my help!) with please let me know.
