    Only one problem Jim. The type 3 barrel band didn't come about until about the November 1944 time frame. If it is an E serial number it would have been made well before the type 3 band was available. They were originally experimental models that were later used for presentations. Known numbers go at least up to #259. This one being offered is about as wrong as can be. As is it's maybe $850 carbine the same as any rebuilt. The only rare thing is what is in the sellers mind.

    Dealers on auction sites always embellish their marketing. The guy only sells firearms on GB too.
    That's probably a tung oil finish or it's been heavily waxed and polished. The finish on the metal is a long way from being "presentation" grade as well.
    "...A bayonet lug on..." Probably put on during the post war rebuild.

    Spelling and Grammar count!
