It is matching…..just not from 1923. I find it interesting that the nosecap remained matching after a 1947 rebuild. So many are blank.Surely no one is silly enough to pay that much money for that.
1923 dated actions are rarer for sure, but would even a matching example (I have only seen two) sell for that much?

Correct, you see a lot of late 40’s rebuilds with cut ears and no serial number. I’d ask the question of the seller, but I’ve had little luck with him replying of late…Anthony, the nosecap has either been replaced or had the ears cut as per instructions. So if cut, then orginal with serial number, if replaced why serial numbered when as you said this practice was discontinued.
