As I stated in your welcome post. Do you know what model it is or if it has a C in front of the 1505. They made many models. It really hard to see in the photos. If you could post some photos to include makers marks, model mark and serial # as the ones below we will take a look and see just what you have. @Jeff in Ohio is correct as if it has an 1505 serial# it would have to be a model 1851 and the one in the photo is not a model 1851.

Is that one in the photo nickel plated or armory bright? 20 some odd years ago there was a nickel (looked chromed actually IIRC) Sharps carbine hanging on the wall in a shop in Edgewater FL, he had a lot of older stuff. He said it had been plated that way as it was used in ceremonial duties. It just didn't look quite right to me, the finish that is and I wondered what the real story was on it.

I’m not sure the only one that’s mine is the sharps but I can ask who’s they are
