Re: Springfield Trapdoor Serial Number

Posted by Jim Kawa on Tuesday, 26 May 2009, at 1:15 p.m.

I recently acquired a 1873 trapdoor springfield cadet in simply marvelous condition. Its serial number is 37529. Is there any records out there to determine where this little rascal has been? And approximately what year it was made? Could it possibly been shipped to West Point? I also noticed on the front barrel band, marked on the ring November 4th, 1874, does this have any significants to when it was made? It only has the cartouche esa and the final P. All info would greatly be appreciated. Thanks Jim K.
