I picked up a RI 1903, and it happened to have this in the buttstock trap! As information about these seems scarce, how would I know if it's real or not, and what would it's value be?

There is one small crack, as shown in the third picture.

Thanks for the help guys!

It looks real and righteous to me.

Lt. Col. Brophy gives details on, and pictures of, the spare parts kit in his book on the 1903.

If I recall correctly, the parts kits were at one time issued in every second rifle, with the cleaning kit in all the others.

You don't see them all that often anymore, and I can't really help you with the value.

A nice extra, and pretty scarce.
