Numbered 1913 Warner Swasey Scope

I have had about 6 1913 Warner Swasey scopes and built an unbelievable 1918 with all correct parts and even found one of the 20 round magazines for it which made for one heck of an odd looking sniper rifle. Last week, I found the first example I have found with the "for rifle 677881" stamped on the inside rail. I am hoping someone out there has or knows of this receiver. My main question is, how much rarer is a numbered Warner scope and hence, how much added value does one of these "been there" scope brings over the usual post war surplus model. I can only dream of finding the rifle or receiver that matches this scope and to rebuild to original specs and match these two up again after almost 100 years separated.
