1873 Trapdoor question

Posted by Ed S. on Friday, 20 March 2009, at 5:18 p.m.

I have recently purchased an 1873 Springfield, serial no. indicates 1875 manufacturer. Question; side lock plate is stamped 1883?? what gives here. Is this an off site assembly of parts, or perhaps a lock plate change??

And help would be appriciated.
