The top of the barrel is stamped with the three-line address ahead of the R.S. Lawrence adjustable ladder rear sight and "NEW MODEL 1859" at the breech. The action has Sharps and Lawrence patent markings featuring a saddle ring bar with ring on the left side. The stock lacks cartouches.
Very good. The carbine is a mixture of mottled brown and gray patinas with a couple of areas of minor pitting. The wood is good with a couple of gouges and some minor to moderate pressure dents. Mechanically fine.
