    I did a bit more research yesterday. I found an older thread on the CMPicon Forum that made reference to 15 rd. mags that were put up in 5 packs. Anolther reference mentioned 10 packs that contained (2) of the 5's. So far, I can't come up with any other evidence of individually labeled packages, other than what I've shown in my original post. Bill Ricca helped explain how the Stock Numbers changed from the late war years into the early 50's in this link:

    Another forum had a bit more on the (5) or (10) packs in this thread - reference to WB II is made in posts #9 & #10:

    If you have WB II, look at the information on pp. 582-583. There are some corrections and additions on pp. 1306-1307 in WB III, but still leaves my original question unanswered. - Bob

    I'm beginning to think this magazine may have had the wrapper from the outer packaging just taped to the outside of it? I might have bid on it just to find out, if it hadn't gone up so darn high! - Bob

    Ooops! That's incorrect on my part, since it plainly says, "1 magazine" right on the label.

    A $100 for a wrapped up magazine done in 1953. Someone has as much money to burn as Bloomberg it seems.

    I'm surprised they were able to stay under the radar for an entire auction.
    You can't sell magazines over 15 round capacity on eBay...or at least you're not supposed to.

    In fact, you're supposed to explicitly state how many rounds the magazine holds. I once got put in time out for selling a Spanish Destroyer magazine. They hold something like 7 rounds but I didn't state that.

    Here's a listing where they just called them "Military Collectibles" and added some pics. - Bob

    That looks like a seller that has also seen his fair share of timeout

    '100 magazines for each carbine. That would be like 260,000,000 magazines.'

    100 magazines each for 6 million M1icon Carbines is 600,000,000. Either way its a lot of magazines, of which maybe 100,000,000 are still existing.
    'Really Senior Member' Especially since I started on the original Culver forum. That had to be about 1998.

    Yup your right Inland. I may have just got mad listening to a Bloombutts ad where he lies about himself and the President at the time I posted. So not thinking right. Sorry about that Chief.
