Description:

Manufactured in 1862. Matching serial number on the left side of the lower tang, barrel (recut), stock inlet, both buttplate screws, and buttplate. Only around 14,000 Henrys were manufactured in 1860-1866, and around half of them are believed to have been used by Union soldiers, mostly purchased by the men themselves, some using reenlistment bonuses. "That damned Yankee rifle that can be loaded on Sunday and fired all week" was one of the most advanced firearms of the war.
