How can you tell if an M1 carbine stock is a prototype?

They are REALLY rare, but if it has a large 1,2,3,4, or 5 on the stock it is for sure a prototype. If it has a number over 6 with just numbers and no letters, it may be. Look at some pictures of M1 carbine stocks, and see if it looks any different. If it has any weird stamps on the wood, re-ask the question with a description of the stamp.
