Your rifle in on the edge either very late 1881 or early 1882. Cartouche would be SWP 1881 or SWP 1882. You can do your appraisal right here, go to the classified section and look thru the rifles sold or for sale and find one in the condition of yours.These are honest real word numbers. As you asked about the cartouche note that without it deduct 25% from value as a collector item. Hope this helps.
