    Default My Son's New M1 Garand

    Here are some pictures of an M1 Garand that my son Tom purchased. Please note in the pictures there is a lot of dried cosmoline all over this M1 that looks like dirt or rust, it isn’t.

    Tom saw this M1 advertised as a WWII M1 Garand and quickly realized it was a Pre-WWII M1 Garand that became a Lend Lease M1. He quickly purchased it. The serial number of 321938 puts its manufacture date in July of 1941. It appears to me as all original and even has some red paint on the stock.

    This was a Great Find. Tom now has an Early Correct Winchester M1 Garand and a Lend Lease M1 Garand. Maybe when I move on he will get one of my Lend Lease Garands.

    Great addition, too bad somebody removed the red paint.

    At least there is a small amount on the wood. My two Lend Lease Garands are also missing red paint. Their serial numbers are in the 400K range and very close to each other.

    Without any doubt that is an unmessed with original lend lease in the same configuration as when it came out of the factory. Don't worry about the red paint being missing. Mine doesn't have it either and it doesn't hurt the value.
