this is an 1873 springfield Armory Cadt rifle, with a 1873 marked breech, lockplate, and rear sight. Wood has dings from useage but no breaks or repairs. Metal has a brown patina. The barrel is 30" and has clean bore with sharp rifling. Very rare to see the shiney bore on these cadet rifles! Has faint but complete cartoucheon the left side, and behind the trigger guard tang.
