Re: husqvarna 22 rifles
Huskies are sweet guns. I've got a couple or six, including a 22 bolt, for which I paid the great price of 80 bucks, from a retail establishment, in 2005. They are not very valuable, money-wise, because people don't realize just how good they are. They think, "Husqvarna? Don't they make chainsaws? What do they know about guns?"
That's good for us that want to buy 'em. Not so good for folks that want to sell 'em.
Your date is a little early. Importing of these ran from '49 to '55. It sounds like you have either a

Indexed sights set for 20, 50, 100 and 200m. Leaf sights for export. Imported from 1949-1955. No engraving. Walnut stained Beechwood heavy halfstock. Uncheckered pistol grip.

Apperture sights. 1949-1955 No. Walnut stained Beechwood heavy halfstock. Uncheckered pistol grip.Lead inlays. Bolt action, bendt handle. Competition verison of No. 622.
Difference appears to be in the sights (leaf versus peep) and the 623 had lead inlays in the stock.
Serial numbers 200 to 2500 were made in 1949, so your SN 959 is first year of production.
