Re: Springfield carbine serial number 89778 history

I own 89998, which has an ESA/1877 cartouche, as well as the fairly scarce Model 1877 rear sight, and band with stacking swivel. There is no record of it either. Photo at wwwDOTpicturetrailDOTcom/sa4570af.
Production (and likely the tallying of same) was a bit, shall we say "erratic" in the 1877/78 period - SA was actually closed for six months, due to the failure of the appropriations bill to pass Congress.
