Hi, thank you for your response, We are not gun people so we are rather novices at this. After further checking it does appear to be a 1873. The serial # is 4959. We had it looked at one time by a local person who advised it was in very good shape (It has been kept in a gun case for at least the last 40 years) Is there anything else that we can look for that could help us to determine the value or if everything on it is authentic. We would gladly take it to a local dealer if we knew someone who would give us a honest opinion. We live in Wichita, Ks. Thank you for your help.
