serial #82088, 45-70, 28'' round barrel with a bright very good plus bore showing a few small patches of light pitting. The barrel of this non-martially-marked rifle retains perhaps 80% original blue toning to plum-brown patina under bright light with scattered light freckling. The first line of the barrel address is rather soft but the second line is clearly legible. The bolt is a mottled gray patina while the barrel bands have mostly flaked to gray-brown showing some strong streaks of original blue. The receiver retains some areas of bold case-hardened colors with overall toning to gray-brown patina. The plain walnut stocks remain in very good plus condition retaining most of their original finish with overall light dings, scratches, handling marks and a small ''4'' stamped behind the lower tang. The original ramrod, sights and sling swivels are intact. A fine example that has seen little use. (138737-349) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection] (1500/2000) Sold For 2070.00
