A friend of mine went to the rock island auction last month. I finaly got to see the trap door he bought. the serial #170740 cartouch swp 1882. it has the smoothe triger. rear. sight is the m1878 with slotless screws. the lock plate is marked with the eagle and us springfield 1873. There is 2 circle ps back of the triger gaurd one is lighter than the other. I didn't get to look very long because it was raining. He would like to know if there is any info on this piece . Thank you in advance.

ps I could be wrong on the cartouch it was very faint.
