Serial number question
« on: August 06, 2022, 05:12:37 AM »
I was looking at a different Spencer here, serial number 9822 There is damage where the serial number is listed, so I'm a bit skeptical of that,  But were carbine in this range even built?   Any information will be appreciated, and I understand that precise info is not available often.

I see a Spencer serial #9824, #9835, and #9838 listed as a Spencer Rifles.  Randomly, Four digit serial #s were intermixed as rifles and carbines, with more rifle designations listed. 

Your serial #9822 looks to be a Spencer Carbine.  The serial # also appears on the underside of the barrel under the wooden forearm.  Ask the seller to check if the serial # found there is the same as on the receiver.

Two Flints  BTW, Check Dave Taylor's Civil War Antiques for Spencer offerings.
