Gwyn & Campbell. Model type II Civil War Carbine. Cal .52 Percussion. 20" part octagon barrel. Blue/case hardened finish, walnut stock. Around 8,200 of these "Grapevine Carbines" were manufactured during 1863 and 1864 by Edward Gwyn and Albert Campbell in Hamilton Ohio. They were manufactured in the same factory as the Cosmopolitan carbines upon which they are based. This example has a blade front sight, notch and folding rear ladder sight, Government inspection markings, including a boxed cartouche on the stock. Condition is very fine. 60 % plus of the original blue finish and case colors remaining. The balance has a grey and brown patina. The tang and breechblock retain 80% original bright niter blue. The stock is fine and has some small dings and minor chips. The cartouche is crisply stamped but has a dent over the last letter. Mechanically excellent. Serial # 2857X.
