Can't argue with that much. I also look at the mum right away. Difference is, as a serious collector I then look at part #s, original accessories, overall condition and price. Some people are more or less Mum collectors and don't care about anything else. They also generally don't know anything else. Can't recall how many times, but its been more than a couple that I've been told "Oh, that's a good one, it's got the mum see." The rifle generally has a struck mum not a full mum and some have been mismatched, rusty, sporterized(F@#$ed UP), and drilled and tapped. I will take a nice ground mum over a junked out full mum all day long.

I own firearms not to fight against my government, but to ensure I will not have to.
