SN 2309. Cal. 56-50. Bbl length is 20″. Brass hinged breech action with carbine ring and bar marked “GREENE RIFLE WORKS WORCESTER MASS. PAT. FEB. 1864”. 20″ armory bright bbl with folding rear staff sight graduated to 800 yards. 2-pc walnut stocks with rear swivel and brass butt. One of approximately 2500 contracted by James Warner for his military contract of 1864. Widely issued to Massachusetts and Wisconsin cavalry regiments. CONDITION: Very fine overall as brass receiver has mellowed to a light uncleaned mustard patina. Armory bright bbl has obtained a slight amount of patina more so towards muzzle. 2-pc walnut stocks are very fine with one very minor stress crack from shrinkage at wrist. A later application of finish has been applied but is aesthetically pleasing. Bore and mechanics are fine inclusive of the patented extractor which is normally failing. A very prime example. 50399-1 TDW (3,500-4,500) – Lot 2150
