She’s an 1816 the side plate ids her. The 1838 is likely 1836. She looks very nice. The blonde wood though with those crisp car touches is curious. I would apply a couple coats of Kramer’s Best. If she doesn’t start to darken up I would ask someone who knows wood to take a hard look. Then I might start asking questions of the seller. Unless the price was real good that is.
Thanks, I will take more pics tomorrow once it arrives, unless FEDEX is wrong again. So what would be the problem/issue if the wood is a lighter color?
