Thread resurrection just to show how great this forum really is! My latest acquisition (early 1917) had these same numbers in the same places discussed above and it was driving me crazy wanting to know why. Now I find out I'm not the only one with such a gun...and also that it appears it was rebuilt by the Springfield Armory. My gun had matching serial numbers (2632) in all the right places but it also had "6202" stamped in 4 places also in a larger font.
The rebuild doesn't bother me since it just shows this gun has character and had travelled a bit. Also the "GHS" is missing on my gun (just like on one above).
Mystery solved.

Thanks.. Roger
