Re: Serial Number for Model 1884

Blair- The closest numbers for which any information has been found are for 291384 and 291410, both of which were used by volunteer units from two different states during the Spanish American War. There is no way to tell where yours was used, or if it hid at home in the local armory for the duration.
Records have been found on only about 25,000 out of the 567,000 made, so most people share your frustration at not knowing more.
