Early gun in the 16k serial range. This is early enough that the serial number is on the side of the lower tang and not visible without removing the stock. This would be an early 2nd model 1866 with Henry marked bbl with correct small lever. This is high condition for an 1866 saddle ring. Grey/brown color to the bbl and mag tube. Still has visible bbl markings. Correct early style sights. Attractive brass patina to the receiver and also the buttplate. For an early carbine this buttstock is correct. Buttstock is nice overall with handling marks but good and solid. Was lightly cleaned many years ago and looks like a coat of oil was added. Forearm wood is in great condition for a carbine. Very small crack coming off of the forearm but all wood is present. A good early collectable gun!
