This Model 1862 carbine falls late within the transitional serial number range (estimated as 2400-3600), but the breechblock is the hook type modified with a catch rather than the Model 1864 type catch. It is numbered "3336" on the tang and "3513" on the breechblock and otherwise has the standard markings and features and a "GDM" collection mark by the toe. Provenance: The George Moller Collection

Rating Definition:

Good with traces of the thin blue finish remaining on the barrel and upper tang, traces of original case colors, and attractive aged patina on the brass. The stock is also good and has mild dents and scratches. The breech latch is finicky, but the carbine is mechanically fine.
