Re: Model 1873 Springfield Trapdoor rifle

Some problems here. 26081 is 1875 - even 26081X (the old hammer coverage problem) would be more like 1883. The initials above the date are those of the Master Armorer, Samuel W. Porter. I'd check the number again, as well as the "6" on the stamp. Value, probably around $500-$800, if complete and in nice shape.
