Default What do I Have Here?

where a Crest should be, part of the metal has been buffed away, and what's left says "of 1917" and below that says "ington." I'm assuming this means this was number X out of one thousand, nine hundred seventeen produced followed by the name of the city. On the left side of the receiver, right next to the bolt, there are two Eagle heads, I'm assuming, with the numbers f11 next to one and F12 next to the other. What is this, and is it worth anything?

It's a 1917 Enfield made by Remington that has had the rear sight ears ground off and the rear receiver bridge contoured.

That would have been my guess also but then again I was not 100 percent sure. I was thinking maybe 03A3

The bent bolt handle and the "1917" gave it away to me.
I have a sporterized with the ears and rear site intact, a really strong action from what I hear.

The "belly" in the magazine is another giveaway sign.
