Please help me identify this Anschutz .22lr rifle

I've got the opportunity to buy this beautiful Anschutz .22 lr rifle but can't identify it for sure. They tell me it's a model 153-S, but when I look that up in the blue book it's saying it would be in .222 Rem. It's on the 64 Anschutz action and has iron sights with two rear fold down leaves in the sight. The serial number is 402303 and the receiver says: J.G. Anschutz GmbH, waffenfabrik Ulm/D. Germany. It has double set triggers and no checkering. The walnut is very highly figured and is definitely not what you see now days! Can you help me figure out what model this really is?

A picture would be a big help. Sounds like a nice rifle but it should, it's an Anschutz.
