As stated I have seen probably a thousand early model 70,s over the years and never a type 3 without rear bridge drilled. Quite unusal. A normal model 70 base will not fit a magnum action rifle. Tne only solution that wont severly reduce values is to aquire a STITH mount from ebay or like auction sites and instead of using the old stlyle front " ring" instead use the front base and ring of a modern mount and use the STITH rear mount that uses the existing reciever sight holes. This will allow a standard 2 occular scope and a sturdier set up. Even though STITH bases are expensive, drilling an undrilled base is far more expensive in reduced collector value.
