Lockplate is marked “Harpers/Ferry/1852” behind hammer and with an eagle over “US” forward of hammer. Barrel is rifled and fitted with a long range near sight. Slightly less than 10,000 were fitted with sights. Originally produced as a smoothbore, an alteration was performed by both Springfield and Harpers Ferry Armories. The total quantity done was 14,182. This example has a very dark overall appearance. Walnut stock and all metal are dark. Barrel tang is dated 1853. Correct “VP/Eagle” and “PB/P” on barrel. No visible cartouche. “S” stamped above lock screw escutcheon plate. Very strong action. Bore might scrub out nicely although it matches the exterior so nicely. 100% original. A very nice addition to any gun collection.    [ss]
