I cannot say anything more than that it has a high-arch block in a narrow receiver, in other words a gross "match". I have not seen the block inscription, and so, much better views would be required before I could offer an opinion as to whether I felt it was the ORIGINAL block. The first photo I saw seemed to show a later rounded-edge block; only after I saw it open was I forced to change my assessment.
