That's correct. The bolt on this one is blue and the parkerizing has turned a shade of green.

The original parkerized finish on a Winchester is generally darker than most other USGI carbines, some of the early Winchesters are a dark gray, almost black. They tend to pickup that green hugh over time.

I have several Winchesters in my collections, for some reason they seem to be my favorite of the USGI carbines.

I was told that the Green hue is stained into the parkerizing by the Cosmoline that they were packed in to protect them in shipment and storage. I don't know how true that is.

You have a type II barrel band and a flat top bolt. The transission time from the type I to the type II barrel band, and from the round top to the flat top bolt is around the middle of 1944.

Your rifle's serial number should be no earlier than April 1944. Generally speaking M1 carbine manufacturers tried to keep 90 days worth of parts on hand in case there were shortages, so there should be a three month 'window' of what got installed when.

Very cool. That would be the equivalent of paying $200 today, which I'd do in a heartbeat.
