Re: 1873 Trapdoor

What shape is the cartouche - rectangular or oval? And, if you can read the initials, are they ESA or SWP?

It would seem that the stock is not original to the barreled action (or vice-versa) since 1878 serial numbers would be around 90/95000. This is not a huge deal except to a collector, since many guns have had parts switched over the years.
