The correct hammer is just checkered - no border. If it has an oval border, it has been replaced. Since lock-plate and tumbler have been changed, I'd guess hammer was too; rear sight is the Model 1884 "Buffington" type. So, your rifle has had a LOT of changes - all of which COULD have been "official" but that is unlikely.
