    KENNEDY SADDLE RING CARBINE - Serial number "I 127" Circa 1880's. .44-.40 caliber with 20" round barrel stamped "Whitneyville Armory, CT, U.S.A." This carbine sat in a moist environment, causing the butt of the stock to erode and the butt plate to become detached. A very old and hard rawhide wrap, along with a number of large-diameter tacks are present on the butt stock. There are a number of markings in the wood applied to add decoration. This carbine is a rare survivor of the Indian wars era. Accompanied by an Indian-made scabbard with fringe decoration.

    Saddle ring intentionally removed during period of use, as found on many American Indian carbines. Carbine has an overall un-cleaned pleasing appearance.
