Eleven? Purchased? HIS gun collection? Lucky kid.
As to your question, it's a standard rifle - the reason being that NO cadet rifles EVER had rod-bayonets. FWIW, it should be marked 1884, not 1873.
That is a low number for the model, must have been among the first few made after it was adopted. That doesn't mean it is "rare", however, just a point of information.
