Serial No. Versus SWP Cartouche

Posted by W. R. Smith on Friday, 27 December 2013, at 6:18 p.m.

I'm new to the trapdoor. Typically collect Civil War and earlier. I'm interested in an 1873 carbine that has, according to this site's resources, a semi-early serial number, say 1877 or earlier. Yet the SWP cartouche is clearly 1884. How is this reconciled? Thanks for any help.
