1873 Trapdoor

Posted by Michael Rees on Sunday, 26 January 2014, at 8:57 p.m., in response to Re: info about model 1884, posted by Stephen B. McCartney on Friday, 24 January 2014, at 10:03 a.m.

This is in reference to a 1873 Springfield Trapdoor. The cartouche indicates that it was built in 1878. The rear sight is of the ski slope variety and the aft sling mount is attached to the trigger guard. The serial numbers first three digits are 185***. Are there any references to the serial number and the cartouche date through which I will be able to establish if the rifle is all original?
