Is this real?

Posted by Otto Leinhauser on Tuesday, 19 August 2014, at 6:58 a.m.

I see a 1868 Trapdoor on the internet: Model 1868 Springfield Trapdoor, breechblock dated 1870 over eaglehead, crossed arrows over U.S., lock dated 1863. Bore very good. Serial no. 39335

Question: Since (nearly) all Springfields with S/N below 50000 were to be turned in, what is the chance this one may have original receiver, barrel and stock. There is no star after S/N.
