How to tell what year?

Posted by B Foster on Monday, 22 November 2010, at 11:47 p.m.

How do you tell what year the Springfield was modified to the trapdoor configuration? Is it strictly by serial number? If so, where is the serial number located? My brother in Pennsylvania has the rifle in his possession so I have to relay the information to him.

The date on the plate is 1863. Thanks for the help! B Foster
