Description:

Approximately 50,000 of these carbines were manufactured between 1863 and 1865 for the Union Army. Spencer carbines are easily one of the most advanced and popular weapons of the war and remained important in the Indian Wars of the latter half of the 19th century, especially prior to the widespread adoption of the Springfield trapdoor. A faint inspection cartouche is visible on the left of the wrist.

Rating Definition:

Good, exhibiting brown patina overall with scattered light pitting and moderate corrosion. Wood is also good as re-oiled, with scattered scratches and dents, a worn indented section behind the barrel band from period use, a chip above the sling bar, and a faintly visible inspection cartouche. Mechanically excellent
