Re: 1873 Springfield Carbine Serial Number37395

I have owned carbine #37395 for about 30 years. Stephen Dorsey of Gun Report sent me a letter in 1993 stating my carbine falls between 37225 and 38853 turned in as unserviceable by the 7th Cav ,2nd quarter 1877.This gun is beat all to pieces and shows bad abuse most likely by Indians. I also have another written book which speaks to the Indian turn in's of the time period of 1877 and 1878,but I cannot lay my hands on it at the moment.
