SN 8611. Cal 44 RF Henry. Standard Henry rifle with 24-1/4″ oct bbl. Integral magazine with German silver front sight blade and 900 yard Henry ladder rear sight. Top flat of bbl has standard 2-line Henry patent date and company address. Mounted with uncheckered straight grain American walnut buttstock that has straight grip and crescent brass buttplate with trap. Left side of buttstock has factory sling swivel with discernible “Henry Bump” below. Left side of bbl has a corresponding sling loop. This rifle was produced in 1865, probably about the culmination of hostilities of the Civil War. It may or may not have seen service during the war, but most certainly would have been used on the American frontier during the great westward expansion of Manifest Destiny. Arms of that era generally saw extensive hard service under extreme conditions, usually with little or no maintenance. CONDITION: About good, all matching. No orig finish remains with the bbl & magazine being a mottled gray/brown patina with scattered nicks & dings from hard service. Receiver & side plates show rounded edges with nicks, dings & scratches. Hammer is a mottled gray/brown patina and the lever is heavily pitted. Buttstock has a couple of hairlines in the right wrist, otherwise is sound with a couple of gouges and shows an old restored finish. Mechanics are fine. Strong sharp bore with moderate pitting. 51378-3 (9,000-12,000) – Lot 1016
