Features full octagon barrel, brass frame, brass buttplate, case colored hammer and lever. Matching serial numbers on barrel, lower inside tang, upper tang channel on buttstock and bottom inside of buttplate. Stock has an inlaid 1/2" Moravian star. The following parts can be found in the book titled "The Henry Rifle" by Les Quick: later larger bevel top rear frame, page 57; later large diameter trigger retaining pin, page 63; barrel only sight dovetail; later large barrel address, page 75; large variation magazine cartridge follow with milled flat receiver slot, pages 80-81; second type stock comb, page 90; extra varnished stock; second style smaller buttstock hole, page 100; later all steel style four piece Henry rod, page 105; later style buttplate with pointed heel and small gate, page 107; later style screw holes with reinforcing bosses, page 109; later round head stock attaching screws, page 116; later round head buttplate attaching screws, page 117; square back front sight, 121; Type E rear ladder sight, page 122.

Colors have darkened and patterned on hammer. All screw heads are basically true. Walnut stock retains the majority of its original extra finish but just usual small bumps and bruises; beautiful finish, proud to metal with no cracks, chips or repairs. Fine action. Rifling is well defined with sharp edges and just minor black powder abrasion. Absolutely untouched, homogeneous, attic-find, Henry rifle.
