No archival info found (through 1995) on either number.
The carbine (up for auction) certainly appears genuine, and could probably be made to look a lot better if stabilized (and I do NOT mean "restored" or refinished!!) with some TLC. I have NO problem with "rough" 1873 carbines - in fact, I'm pretty well turned off by "minty" ones, which clearly have zero history.
The (loose?) receiver PROBABLY came from an 1873 rifle.
