    Civil War Smith .50 Caliber Percussion Breech Loading Carbine #16819 Matching. Massachusetts Arms Co. makers mark. Very nice untouched example, just showing honest use. All metal smooth and dark gray with scattered traces of blue. Mechanically perfect, excellent bore, crisp marks, absolutely no rust or pitting. Wood generally smooth with nice patina, just some scattered dents on the butt stock from saddle wear, weak but visible inspector's cartouche. Tight overall, complete and original in every respect. One of the more popular Civil War breech loading carbines with some 30,000 purchased for Civil War issuance.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
