serial #44112, 11.35mm, 36" barrel with a very good plus bore that has some light frosting. The barrel and bands are a dull gray patina with some minor oxidation staining here and there. The action is a light gray patina with some scattered light oxidation staining. The hardwood stock rates very good as-cleaned with a couple small chips, scattered dings and handling marks. The buttstock is numbered matching to the barrel and there is a small brass disc on the right side of the butt that is marked "2AB/1780". The breechblock has two firing pin holes and there is a crown marking on the left side of the barrel indicating that this rifle was updated to fire the 11.35mm cartridge. A very good example of these Danish Rolling Block rifles. (208877-17) {ANTIQUE} (400/600) SOLD FOR $460.00
