Civil War period Henry rifle with standard configuration. 24" barrel with integral magazine. Walnut stock with gun metal brass receiver and buttplate. 1000 yard ladder adjustable rear sight, German silver blade front sight with Henry's patent two line address on top barrel flat. Serial number is found over chamber at top barrel flat. Lower tang marked 2454 as well as buttplate. Buttplate screws are both numbered to rifle. Lower tang screw is found to have the last two numbers of serial number present. Top tang wood screw and rear tang screw are both replacements. Right side of butt stock has been heavily inscribed "J.J. MAY 1871". CONDITION. Fair as partially restored. The barrel has a dark brown patina overall with small areas of pitting evident. The front sight collar retaining screw has been replaced with an appropriate modern screw. The ladder rear sight is a very good reproduction of the proper sight that has been artfully aged to appear correct. The gun metal brass receiver has been lightly polished and is now bright. The side plates have several nick at top and bottom from disassembly. The lower tang has an almost indiscernible crack repair at the confluence of the tang and lower receiver. The wood stock has been heavily refinished and is undersized front tang and buttplate at toe area. Several period wood splices are evident under the heavy stock varnish. TDW
