The key word you use is, "presumed". If I am going to pay high dollar I would prefer to not "presume" or "assume" anything. If the stock had even a full set of faint cartouches and proper handling marks, it could fetch a high dollar amount, and it may even still do so. I think the stocks can tell a real story, especially if you want to believe this carbine was carried from Ft. Lincoln to the LBH, and back, with all the beating it would have taken, and that was ALOT of beating. :)
