I would be EXTREMELY suspicious of any "correct" M1 Carbine.
Seriously, if there's not documentation showing the gun being released to a retiring officer in 1945, or some such, I would not buy any story of originality, especially when such stories add $1000 or more to the price tag.

I'd be inclined to look for a gun that is correctly rebuilt - adjustable rear sight, bayonet lug, M2 mag catch, round bolt, rebuild stamp(s), etc. - as being more likely authentic USGI, and no need to buy a story of originality.
