This piece is a real unmolested survivor. It is a completely original gun that has not been tampered. There is a dime size area of old shallow pitting on the left barrel just in front of the chamber as pictured. The gun remains tight and on face with excellent mechanics. It is a superb candidate for restoration with stock refinish, barrel browning, and buttplate repair. I would do nothing with the receiver. Or just repair the buttplate and use it as is. An outstanding vintager piece with highly figured wood. It should be good for another 137 years for its next lucky owner.
