    I recently acquired an H&R 1873 US Springfield Officers model breach-load 45-70. It is in near excellent condition. The SN is 2764. Can you tell me how many of these they made and how much it is worth.

    Not sure how many were made, but I haven't seen any collector interest in these. They are good shooters, however. They trade in the Cowboy Shooting world for 5-600, NIB.
