More About this Item


Description: serial #62667, 50-70 CF, 22" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The barrel is primarily a light smooth brown patina with some generous traces of original blue-gray finish near the frame and around the sights. The frame and lockplate are primarily a mottled smoky gray case-hardened patina with speckled smooth brown also showing some generous traces of original colors in the protected areas. The smooth walnut buttstock and forend rate very good plus as lightly cleaned and are now devoid of finish, still retaining minor dings and handling marks from the years, the left side of the butt showing two cartouches, one at its center, one by the sling ring bar. The mechanism is crisp and mechanically functional and the barrel is appropriately numbered to the frame. Springfield Research Service lists this carbine by serial number as having been issued to Company K., 2nd New York Veteran Volunteer Cavalry in September of 1864 (the Empire Light Cavalry). A nice example overall of these post-war cartridge-converted Sharps carbines. (35556-10) {ANTIQUE}
