Unless it is absolutely 100% PRISTINE MINT, that is - IMHO - just about TWICE what it is worth.

On a more positive note, while there is no info recorded against your exact number, that IS a believable s/n range for a carbine, being one of the final batch of 5000 made in 1889. I have owned 452770 for many years.

As such, the breechblock should be marked US/Model/1884.
