Garand M1 Need help and info

I am looking to sell an M1 Garand . It is somewhat of a rare bird and I am not sure what to make of it. It is a Springfield with the serial number of T5 and that is it. No other numbers.

Several of the parts on the gun are marked with the letters NM. Any help would be appreciated.

As I said I am looking to sell this it would have to be FFL to FFL. bvioiusly I am not sure what to ask as I can find no info on this weapon other than it being a Garand, The serial numbers has me stumped.

Help

I've never seen a serial number with just two digits. Does it say anything else on the receiver, besides springfield and the SN#?

NM means national match.

IIRC, Garands are C&R.

Are there any markings on the barrel like under the wood?

What do the rear sites look like?

Picts would helpfull.

Need pictures of everything. T serial number indicates an experimental model. I didnt see anything in Scott Duff's about a T5 during testing, it might be a WW2 experiment. I'll look through the book and see if I can't find anything, but pictures are needed.

t5 would suggest it was a trials /experimental model, but the NM marked parts suggest if it was some sort of trial model it was later rebuilt- too many ? to give any sort of answer.

What is REALLY needed here is a good photo of the rear of the receiver, showing the Armory markings as well as the serial number.

Exactly what I was thinking. T5 could have been a prototype tanker or it could have been a prototype full auto, there is no way to tell without pictures. It is not a trial gun, those were T1-T3.

Would it have been marked "springfield"? Wouldn't the Japanese have serialized the receiver?
