Hi All

Take a close look at the lock plate markings:

The US and the Date are struck much harder than the word Springfield.

Also I magnified the image of the date on the lock and i swear it is 1879 and not 1873. Perhaps it is a spot of rust, an improper stamp such as the 1878 error on the breach block of later manufacture or my old eyes.
