I have received your pictures and will respond further tonight.
It is a Model 1873, and from the period where the too-heavy stamp occurs, making it LOOK like 1878, but it isn't. That is the model designation only, NOT the year of manufacture - which can be determined from the serial number, since we know how many were made each quarter of each year. There is no abnormalilty, or discrepancy, in your markings, at all.
