Re: Recently aquired 1873 rifle

I looked very thoroughly at the SN. There was a bit of build up over the SN, and with a light amount of solvent and a nylon brush, I cleaned it all off. The SN impressions aren't that deep, but there are clearly only 4 numbers. Believe me, I wouldn't be asking about it if I thought I missed some numbers. Was I correct with the VP Eagle being stamped after SN 50,000? If that's so, my SN may be VERY worn, but it doesn't appear to be so. Any info on the "N" stamp on the top of the barrel?
