This carbine bears a serial #16658 and has an overall length of 39.00 inches. All gunmetal wears a smooth, dark patina with very little pitting.

Carbine has a 22.00 inch round barrel with the original folding rear sight and small brass blade front sight. Rear sight is missing appture. Bore has good rifling but is slightly dirty. Barrel is held to the forearm of the stock by a single barrel band.

Top flat of the receiver, forward of the hammer, is stamped with “SPENCER REPEATING / RIFLE CO. BOSTON MASS / PAT’S MARCH 6, 1860” in three lines. Stamping is very readable. Receiver, triggerguard and hammer all show a uniform dark appearance with the very small amounts of pinprick pitting and light surface rust. Action works well.

Oiled walnut stock and forend are in hard used condition with numerous dings and dents scattered throughout along with several minor chips. These appears to be the result of heavy use. There are no cracks visible.  The top of the wrist has a silver inlay in the shape of a diamond approx. 1.00 x 0.50 inches. The right side of the butt has the letter “H” carved into it twice. There is also a silver inlaid heart and a spreadwinged eagle. The eagle meas. approx. 1.50 x 1.00 inch. The heart is approx. 0.75 x 1.00.

The original, steel, tubular loading magazine located in the buttstock is present but is very hard to remove. The plunger and spring are gone from it

The carbine sling bar and ring are tightly attached to the stock’s left side. One screw looks to be an old replacement. Carbine retains its single sling swivel under the stock near the toe.  [ad]
