I picked up a relic (dug) Spencer carbine on Friday from a local guy.  He said he knows who dug it so I will have to see if I can get more information.  SN on the receiver is tough to read but you can make out a 543.  SN on the barrel where it was protected by the wood for however long is very clear 54373.  

According to Two Flints it is a direct hit in the SRS for company M 1st Alabama Cavalry issued on 6 Nov 1864.  

I may try to clear up some of the receiver if I can.

This guy has some good tips on bringing out lettering and serial numbers on relic firearms.  Jw      https://youtu.be/sLwhVePvFeM
