Hi All,

While passing through Crown Point, IN this past weekend, we stopped off and grabbed some photos of the M4A1(76) HVSS on display. I took a photo of the build number on the side, but couldn’t really make out the numbers - they look like 1287 to me however;

The Crown point tank is approximately SN 68021 with a "1-323" mark.

They are upside down, not reversed, on the hull.

It's 1-321 as seen in your photos. My photos are pre-scraping; I must've seen different photos somewhere.

What madness is this?

Ok, I've flipped the photo in Lightroom and I see what you're talking about. Is that an A before the 321?

Thanks Kurt!

No, a stamped hyphen and a V-shaped ripple in the casting or the paint.

sometimes, you see layers of paint and you think you see some stamped letters or numbers. But when you scratch the layers of paint, there is nothing.. I experienced this many times
