There was a guy on the CMP Forum that had a NOS one and wanted a premium for it as it was a "D-Day barrel".
I tried to explain to him that it was a replacement barrel and the date was meaningless. He didn't like that...LOL
$200 is about the going rate for NOS 03A3 barrels.....give or take.

If you get a chance look at the side of the front sight and see if you can see what looks like a dove tail...lighter color in pic. If you see something similar, won't be a color difference, it's a 1903...

And, if you note the center punch mark inside the flaming bomb, that barrel has been installed on a rifle and proof-fired, as a minimum. That makes it used, in my opinion.
You sure about that? I have a 1-44 03A3 barrel still in the paper wrap and full of black cosmoline that has the punch....
