opinions needed on early 1873 barrel

Posted by frontierwest on Wednesday, 18 July 2012, at 9:53 a.m.

The Barrel has a "V" "P" and a mark that looks like a upside down V on the top just forward of the receiver. It also has a few P's and C's on the bottom. Barrel is about 32 1/4 inch long from the receiver end of barrel.

This is on a 8XXX marked receiver, can it be original to the receiver.. or added in your opinion? I have one in the 9000 range and it has no V or P. I know mine has never been fooled with other than being cut down by the rancher. So with a V & P.. how early can the barrel be?
