Well here I am from the former Burlington, Ontario and now residing in Waterdown, Ontario.
I acquired an 1865 Spencer Carbine from the estate of deceased collector here in Ontario.
The former owner was a collector of Canadian Military Historic Arms.
The carbine is excellent shape inside and out.
Although my first thoughts where that it was never issued or carried.
The saddle ring, bar and plate have definite marks that I have seen on other Spencer’s that where carried by horseback.
Provenance is what his collection consisted of.
He did not collect U.S. Civil or Indian war arms.
His collection consisted of everything from the Brown Bess on up that was used here in Canada.
The carbine to the best of family knowledge was acquired from a former family decendent of a member of a Milton, Ontario Militia.
M1865 Spencer Carbine
Serial # 12544
