U.S. Civil War Spencer Model 1860 Army Repeating Rifle
 CONDITION: Excellent, retains 90% original blue finish on the
barrel with some very light pitting around the muzzle. 90% plus
vivid original case colors remain on the frame and components
with some areas of scattered light freckling. Markings and edges in
the metal are distinct. Wood is also excellent with attractive original
raised grain and rich oil finish, some scattered light handling marks
and dents, a small re-glued cracked section ahead of the buttplate tang, defined edges and exceptionally crisp cartouches. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet is excellent, sling is very good. As one of the few very best examples Rock Island Auction Company has ever cataloged, extremely difficult to improve upon, this extraordinary Civil War Spencer Model 1860 rifle would be the crown jewel of any U.S. Martial firearms collection! Provenance: The Gary Bisackie Collection; The David Aroh Collection; The Ron Bucholtz Collection.
Estimate: 35,000 - 55,000
