1873 Springfield carbine serial number

Posted by James B. on Saturday, 24 December 2016, at 9:31 p.m.

I have an 1873 U.S. carbine that was passed down to me and would also appreciate any help or direction to further identify it. It is stamped Springfield 1873 and the serial number appears to be 18689 though there is some wear under the trapdoor latch and hammer where some numbers could have possibly worn off.

I am also seeking a source to identify the various types of rear sights. Thanks and Merry Christmas.
