Joe it looks like a Spencer because it is a Spencer. As to a full restoration you'd need to send it off to an expert in the restoration or conservation of antique weapons. Be advised that restoring it will change it's value and not for the better on most antique rifles. conservation would be the best option.

I appreciate all the helpful information and for taking the time out to help to all you! Thank you all!
Do not "restore" that rifle. You will ruin it forever. It is only original one time - and if you (or someone else) monkeys with it a lot of it's value will be lost. Preserve what is there and call it good. But it is YOUR rifle and not mine.
I appreciate that sir and I will take your advice and leave it as is. Thank you

That's not a Sharps. That's a Spencer, although it does look more like a Sharps than it does a Henry.

I don't believe he edited the title. He had two different posts. One where he said it was a Henry, and one where he said it was a Sharps. Same pictures in both posts.

And apparently one of the moderators blended his two posts.
