I just bought a 1903 Springfield National Match dated 1926. It has all the characteristics that a righteous one should have. Star gauged barrel, heavily checked butt plate, bolt in the white with the serial number electro penciled engraved. polished rails and reversed safety. Took the hand guard off and the air gauge number was present, It also comes with a 1920 National Match sight cover and an O'hare micrometer sight adjuster and a 1907 sling. The stock is almost perfect except for a new nicks and has a mirror bore and the bluing is is 95%+. I have been trying to buy this for 15 years off an old timer (90 years young) that shot at the National Matches and was allowed to buy it after the match ended. He thinks he may still have his purchase papers and record book but is not sure. I will pick it up tomorrow morning. This pretty much makes may 03 collection complete except for the 1922 22lr Springfield and of course a Pedersen device which I will never get.
