    Nice Condition Very Early S. C. Robinson Confederate Sharps .52 Caliber Percussion Breechloading Carbine, #115. Lock markings "S. C. Robinson/ Arms Manufactory/ Richmond, Va./ 1862" with serial number 115 at the tail, and on the tang. "Richmond, Va/ 1862" on the top of the barrel just behind the v-notch rear sight with "S. C. Robinson/ Arms Manufacturing" just forward of the sight. Interestingly the gun also bears the cryptic mark of three diagonal rows of three dots on the side of the receiver. All metal generally smooth and gray, with what appears to be the scattered remains of a coat of nicotine. A few very minor scattered dents and some scattered very light pitting in the breech area. Action tight and crisp, bore excellent to near perfect. Original brass butt plate, saddle ring and bar and butt swivel. All brass with nice dark untouched patina. Wood smooth and dark with the possibility of some recoloring ion the rear portion of the butt which shows obvious saddle wear. The forestock exhibits the anomaly of a small aperture (about the size for a cleaning rod) cut out at the nose. A very nice, completely original Robinson Confederate Sharps, especially desirable with this very low/early serial number.
