Description from user:

1897 Springfield Riffle in excellent condition. My grandmother purchased this riffle about forty years ago at an antique auction. My grandfather put a new strap on it forty years ago. Has not been shot since we have owned it. Has been maintained, cleaned and stored by my cousin who has kept it clean and in his gun safe. He has huge gun collection and keeps his guns cleaned and oiled regularly. He thinks the condition is museum quality. Would like to know value.

What does this mean?

Dear Jim,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a US Model 1884 "Trapdoor" Springfield rifle with an 45-70 caliber. The lock plate is marked marked "U.S. Springfield" with eagle logo and the breech is marked with "US Model 1884".
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 400 to 600 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
