Manufactured in 1865 with the standard marking and features, including matching serial numbers (loading lever correctly not numbered).
Very good plus with 30% bright original blue finish, patterns of original case colors, strong patches of original silver plating in the protected areas, aged patina on the exposed brass, and mostly dark brown patina on the balance of the iron. The grip is fine and has mild handling wear, some light scratches and dings, and light lower edge wear. Mechanically fine. It looks like it just came out of an attic!
