.69 Cal, 34'' barrel with a lightly oxidized bore. The metal surfaces remain partially bright with scattered light pitting and oxidation staining. The tang is numbered ''1416'', the eagle on the lock is a bit light due to light pitting but the ''WHITNEYVILLE'' and 1863 markings are crisp. The walnut stock rates very good with a strong-edges, a strong ''FCW'' inspector's marking, a repaired 1 1/2'' crack on the left side in front of rear band, the expected dings and handling marks from the years. The rifle is equipped with a correct long-range rear sight and a correct ramrod. (208737-388) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection] (1000/1500) Sold For 1380.00
