Re No cartouche

No cartouche means a pretty well-worn gun, usually at least a trace remains. Of course, if the stock is not worn then it must be a replacement - then comes the questions, where, when, and by whom. As to the 1870, be sure that you are getting a real 1870, with the short receiver. A GREAT many so-called 1870s, which is a fairly scarce model, are simply 1868s - which have the long receiver - made in 1870. Big difference in value all other things being equal. Look at the pictures and production figures on the main page.
