This Burnside is from my dad's collection and it has the initials "WTM" on the stock. He never got a chance to try to ID the soldier. From what I've read, the only way to find a soldier's ID or the unit a weapon was issued to is if you're lucky enough for that weapon to be on one of the records that are still around. I just want to see if there's any way to find the soldier/unit. Does this add or detract from the value since it's on there, but I don't have the soldier's identity? Also does anyone know what the "1" and "U" on the underside of the stock are?
