Henry Leman rifles are described on pages 400-403 of George D. Moller's book "American Military Shoulder Arms Volume III" with this exact rifle pictured on pages 400 and 402. The barrel is fitted with blade and notch sights. "H. E. LEMAN/LANCASTER Pa" marked both at the center of the lock and on top of the barrel at the breech. The barrel bands are iron, and the end cap, trigger guard, and buttplate brass. "GDM" (George D. Moller) collection initials marked at the toe of the stock. Includes a period leather sling. Provenance: The George Moller Collection

Rating Definition:

Very good with smooth mottled brown patina on the barrel, scattered light pitting, and nice lock markings. Stock is fine with nice edges, some light scratches and dents, three mild dings ahead of the lock, and attractive grain. Mechanically excellent. Included sling is good with some age related cracking, and the brass hook does not stay in place.
