James, Your serial number also is close to a carbine #35436, which was with the 2nd Cavalry listed as unserviceable in1878. The most imported thing to know about your carbine is if it has the correct early barrel and stock. The brass plating may be able to be reversed or changed out, but if it does not have the correct barrel, it would not be worth doing. I will look at it if you would like to send some good pictures of the carbine to: jrmeredith48@yahoo .com
