Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #4642, 44 RF, 24'' octagon barrel with a very good bore that shows deep rifling its entire length. This rifle features matching numbers on barrel, left side of action tang, in top inlet of buttstock and on inside toe of buttplate. The two buttplate screws are also matching numbered, the other action screws are not numbered. The gun shows proper early features including the rounded heel on buttplate and the sharper profile at rear of action. The barrel shows fully legible and correct markings with metal surfaces showing a pleasing even gray patina and remain quite smooth. The action shows a mellow patina with edges remaining well-defined but showing light wear. The action was clearly cleaned long ago and has reacquired this mellow patina. The hammer and lever are an old gray patina with some darker staining on the right side of the hammer. The walnut buttstock rates very good as refinished with raised grain evident. There is some wood filler in two areas below the sling swivel on the left side of the butt. The rifle is sighted with a German silver blade front and folding ladder rear sight. The hammer and lever screws are probably old replacements. A very solid example of the early style Henry rifle. (18737-687) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. Louis C.
