Armory Tag

Posted by Ken Friedland on Wednesday, 30 December 2015, at 8:47 p.m.

I have just acquired a 1873 Springfield serial number 190xxx. The manufacturer date per the serial number is 1882 with matching cartouche date. On the hammer side at the end of the butt the rifle has an oval tin plate held in place two brads about an inch and a half across and an inch wide with the number 23 stamped in the center. I am curios to know if anyone is familiar with the tag or how I can further research the serial number.
