Hi,

Recently acquired a original NM1859 Berdan Sharps rifle. The stock is in expected condition (saw some action), it has the all of the right stuff, double set trigger, correct inspection stamps, cartouche is partially visible, serial number is 5750X. Unfortunately the barrel has been replaced (after Gettysburg no doubt...wish I could confirm) with a non-original barrel (possibly an enfield (trying to confirm)). The barrel is 30" long and unmarked and the forearm has been shortened to 16" or so.

So what is this confederate captured (as I tell my brother) Berdan Sharps worth? Any guesses?
