You will sometimes find "original as the day it left the factory" examples, but those are few and far between. Most commonly seen is the re-arsenaled matching examples. The font on the receiver is going to be the original SN font that was used. If you see a different font on any parts, ie buttplate, bolt or floorplate, then that part is most likely a replacement part. This is especially easy to see if you have the restamped part that has a previous number lined out. You can see the differences in the font type. Others, you can tell they are restamped as the previous number has been ground or peened away.
