Re: 1873 Trapdoor Serial Number

Thank you for all of your help. I looked at the production data and I thought it said that the rifle was produced in 1882. Am I not looking at it correctly? I'm pretty sure that the cartouche says 1882, and not 1883. Should I be looking closer at the serial number for a star or another marking? There is another marking on the stock directly behind the trigger guard. Is there anywhere else that I should be looking for some distinguishing markings?
