serial #C323, 44-40, 24" octagon barrel with full magazine and a near very good bright bore that shows some scattered patches of pitting. This rifle features an "S" shaped lever with single line Whitneyville address with "KENNEDY" in block letters and the proper later style patent markings on the top tang. The condition of the rifle is nice with the barrel and magazine retaining perhaps 20% original blue blending with a smooth gray brown patina. The action shows about 20% bright original blue with the flaked areas showing a pleasing smooth brown patina and a couple light superficial scratches. The plain walnut buttstock and forend rate very good plus with about 80% original finish remaining with most loss on the forend from normal carry wear. The rifle is sighted with a German silver blade Rocky mountain front and standard sporting rear. Most screwheads are clean, the nosecap screw is quite buggered. A very nice Whitney Kennedy small caliber rifle. (18315-66LTS48) {ANTIQUE} [Lewis T. Steadman Collection] (2000/3000) SOLD FOR $3,105.00
