One of the most beautiful weapons of the Civil War, this is a near mint unmolested example as made in 1863.  The lock is dated 1863 behind the hammer, has the eagle/shield over “U.S.” and “REMINGTON’S / ILION, N.Y.” in front of the hammer and there is a Sub-Inspectors “L” stamped at the front. The top of the barrel at the breech is dated “1863” followed by “US” over the “V/ P” proofs with the eagle head proof just to the left. The left flat is marked “STEEL” and “H.S.L”. The front sight is fixed and the rear sight is a three folding leaf type and there is a bayonet lug mounted on the right side of the barrel 3 inches back of the muzzle. The barrel is blue, casehardened lock and hammer with all brass mountings. Iron ramrod with tulip head. Mounted with a full one-piece straight grip walnut stock with a brass carbine style buttplate and patch box.  Museum grade weapon overall.
