32" round - blue barrel to a soft plum patina with hints of blue a top barrel and barrel bands - light case can be seen on the receiver - Stocks: full walnut stock w/U.S. marked steel butt plate, LWP 1882 cartouche on left wrist - Sights: front block blade sight & stud/Model 1879 rear sight w/"B" mark on base - Markings: crisp & legible; lock plate marked "U.S." / "SPRINGFIELD" / "1873" - "V" / "P" / EAGLE HEAD on barrel - Very Rare starred serial number. As per The .45-70 Springfield by Frasca & Hill, the starred serial number guns were produced in late 1881 and early 1882. "The star appears to be an integral part of the serial number, stamped when the receiver was made and not a separate stamp applied some time later." It is the opinion of Frasca & Hill "that starred weapons designate arms that were cleaned and repaired by the Armory, and that the starred receivers were specially manufactured for use on these repaired arms and were so marked to differentiate between a repaired arm and a newly manufactured arm." In addition "most starred arms will have and early lock plate or both." It is of our opinion that this gun is true and correct . Second type ramrod w/cupped tip - 3rd type stock w/one inspector mark "LWP/1882" and script "P" cartouche at rear of trigger guard - sling swivels & stacking swivel. - - NRA: Fine - SN: 208575 - Est: 2000 - 3000 - Antq - INV 8036
