serial #33304, 44 RF, 27" barrel with full magazine and a bright excellent bore. This is a very fine 1866 musket. The barrel and magazine retain 95% plus strong original blue overall. The action retains a mellow patina with crisp edges and tight sideplates. The hammer and lever retain nice original mottled case-hardened colors. The plain walnut buttstock and full length forend rate very good with lots of original finish remaining with clean edges and scattered handling marks from the years. The three barrel bands bear a smooth gray brown patina. The buttplate shows the same lovely patina as the action. Overall a very fine early third model 1866 musket suitable for any fine Winchester collection. (18087-5) {ANTIQUE} [Kenneth Fry Collection] (6000/8000) SOLD FOR $6,612.50
