Re: 1873 Carbines

Mike, those are all new numbers to me; so I have no usage info to give you - sorry.

Near 15493, I had logged 15492 and 15501

Near 15743, I had logged 15727 and 15748 (shows signs of Indian usage)

Near 36286, I had logged 32269 (5th Cav.) and 36313

All three of those are 7th Cav possibilities. The last one - assuming it is not a reworked rifle stock, of course - has one of the very scarce "transitional" stocks where the wrist was modified, but not the trap.

I'd assume the faint numbers (especially if they are on the sides of the butt) are probably rack numbers.
