    Sharps M1851 .52 Cal. Percussion "Box Lock" Carbine #1374. Very scarce gun with a total of only 1,857 produced. All metal generally smooth and dark with just some light pitting in the breech/ hammer/ primer door area. Completely untouched. Primer mechanism seems to work fine. Very good bore, good markings. The buttstock is fine with nice smooth patina, letter "D" carved on the left side. Extra screw hole on the frame tang which apparently mounted a sight. All original brass furniture fine with nice dark patina, just missing the front band screw. Correct original sights. The forestock has been shattered where it joins the frame, although certainly restorable. A good honest, readily restorable, example of this very rare Sharps carbine with a very low survival rate.
