The Model 1894 was manufactured until serial number 567882. At least that is what is known and recorded by Springfield.
Soooooo, you have at hand one of the last TD's built. A mere 4042 arms from the end of production. My last Rod Rifle was in the 567000 range and I let it get away. Beautiful pristine example from Red Daugherty.
That serial number falls in the second qtr. of 1893.
The Cartouche "should" state 1893. If not something is amiss.
