How do you determine if an M! Garand with a serial number on the receiver indicating manufacture in 1943 qualifies as a C&R rifle? In another words, do M! Garands qualify as curios and relics?

Isn't the C&R requirement that it is 50 years old?

That one is almost 60!

Would have to get out the regs , but the Garand is listed as C&R if made on or before 1956 , I think . Course all the WWII Garands are C&R because of age .

The C&R lists "U.S., Rifle, cal. .30 M1, original military issue only, produced prior to 1956." The number of M1s produced during 1956 and beyond looks to be about 59,679 at Springfield plus an additional 4,185 National Match rifles. This is per Scott Duff's The M1 Garand: Post World War II.

So it looks like there's ~ 63k plus M1s that are not C&R.
