Charly - YOU have it correct.

I have NO idea what John was attempting to convey, just recently, but I do seem to recall that he once labored under the impression that the M1865 First Allin was centerfire, even though it is manifestly clear - from all written references, and extant specimens (of which I own two) - that it was RF.

Any/all .58CF cases found - anywhere - came from something (almost always a rolling block) other than an Allin Springfield.
