Steve M.;

When I spoke to the Curator of the Springfield Armory Museum over 40 years ago about my T.D., he asked me for the serial number of the rifle I'd acquired. He said he looked up the serial number in his record books and gave me the March 13, 1879 date. That's how I came up with the date you're questioning. It wasn't a date I dreamed up.
