Where do I find the SN on my 1873 trapdoor? This piece is in pretty good shape & incl the ramrod & bayonet with its scabbord. It was issued in 1876 to Lorenzo Wells of the Dakota Territory Militia to protect against Sioux & Cheyenne uprisings after gold was discovered in the Black Hills and the Treaty of 1868 was broken. It was handed down to family in 1938 and I bought it in 1993. I am looking to sell it and am researching its value. Thank you. Kit Carter
