Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: serial #48535, 10.66 x 57R, 32 1/2" round barrel with a bright excellent bore. This rifle remains in very fine original condition and is dated 1880 on top of barrel. The barrel retains a pleasing smooth brown patina mixed with perhaps 10 or 15% original blue. The action retains about 60% evenly thinning original blue finish which is blending with a smooth brown patina. The bolt which is mismatched (#36138) remains nice and bright. The stock rates excellent retaining 95% finish which may be an old arsenal refinish but stamps in wood are all still legible and wood is still proud of the metal. Original swivels and cleaning rod are present. A fine Berdan rifle. (15556-46) {ANTIQUE}
