Re: Little Big Horn Carbines?

Hello Bill,

I thought that list looked more than just a little bit familiar, and then your description of the "blurry list" clinched it. So I checked my big 5-inch 3-ring binder labeled "GEORGE ARMSTRONG CUSTER: The Facts, the Legend, the Man, the Myth, the Mystery, the Tragedy, and the Times...The Battle of The Little Big Horn and the Indian Wars" and found the copy I had run of that self-same list off the InterNet. It came from Joe Salter's Website [www.joesalterDOTcomSLASHdetailDOTphp?f_qryitem...] and consisted of some 4 pages - - all very hard to read and worse yet to try to copy. More than half of the numbers you quoted were on his list also, in addition to 39253, 39448, 26691, 20140, and a bunch more.

I just received a phone call about a half hour ago from a ghentleman in Sacramento, California asking about a "possibly-Custer-era" Model 1873 Springfield carbine (S/N 2095) in "very good condition". I was not home at the time, but he left his name and phone number on my answering machine and asked if I would return the call (which I shall).

Thanks for your post!

Best regards,
