Engraving on my 1873 Springfield

Posted by Christopher Johnson on Friday, 30 December 2011, at 7:42 p.m.

Hi, all. I have an 1873 Springfield trapdoor that has been passed down through my family. Through research I have been able to find out quite a bit about it but there is still a single engraving on the stock that I have not been able to find out. Any help would be much appreciated. The engraving says, "Sailors Ship No 1". I have photos of the engraving if it would help. Thanks in advance. Chris
