Re: Serial number for 1873 trapdoor

Mr. Hosmer, Thank you for the date. If it was manufactured in 1884 that probably dispels most chances of it being taken from an Indian combatant. There were no major Indian battles in Texas after 1880 and few raids by Indians leaving the reservations. Maybe it was taken in trade or gambling....?
