SN: 11111 Sharps & Hankins Model 1862 carbine chambered in .52 RF, with leather covered barrel. Produced 1862-65, one of Approx. 6700 made during the Civil War for naval Use. Barrel slides froward when lever is drooped. Barrel Leather covering 95-98% intact with minor aging, and miniscule tears, and losses. Frame, and butt show considerable old nickel on tin plating with some pitting, and erosion. The wood is good to very good, with normal dings, mars, and storage scratches. The action is good. Bore is very good with strong rifling. Unusual serial number of "11111". Possibly a special presentation or gift due to plating, and serial number. Most of these carbines have the leather gone, or trashed. NRA Condition Good Antique Firearm
