Manufactured 1868, immediately after the Flatside variation had just ceased. This early variation however still retains its two line Henry barrel address and Henry 900 yard staff sight. Manufactured with factory sling swivels and crescent buttplate. Two piece walnut stocks have a contemporary finish applied. Barrel and magazine retain a tremendous amount of factory blue finish with several small areas of corrosion evident and balance of finish having turned plum or worn thin. An expertly crafted wood repair has been done at toe and is virtually indistinguishable until dismounted from rifle. Buttstock is serial numbered to rifle inside of mortis. The gun metal brass receiver and buttplate are in a remarkable state of preservation and have attained a pleasant mustard brown patina with no evidence of ever having been cleaned or sideplates having been removed. Much case color is evident on hammer with traces of case color evident on lever in very protect areas. Loading gate retains most of its fiery Nitre blue finish. Bore and mechanics are both exceptional. A very good example of a very rare and early Winchester 1866 rifle.
