Yes, earlier than 1874. There may have been 3 serial number sequences. 1 for Georg as a subcontractor to S,D&G. 1 for H.A. Lindner pre-1891(or when he was forced to replace his >>Crown<< stamp w/ his >>HAL<< stamp and 1 for post >>Crown over Crossed Sidearms<<.

I do not think we are sure that H.A. continued Georg's serial numbers or not?

So since it is not made from a W&C Scott parts kit & it doesn't wear the Quality Control Stamp(QCS) of H.A. Lindner, then it falls in between. I would say for sure pre-1874.

Can you view the initials with a magnifying glass and see if they are >>E.R.<<, >>E.B.<< or >>E.E.<<, which if true would put it in 1876 as that is when Emil Eckoldt hung out his gunmaking shingle.

Good eye on the >>FB<< on the lug. But I was referring to the initials across from the >>65<< just forward of the flats.

I’m not at home. I’ll look tomorrow and post a pic. Thanks for all the help! I noticed those initials in the photos I posted and never noticed it looking at it prior. It’s going to eat at me till I get at home to see what it is.lol

I zoomed up on the same photo and it looks like E R...

It’s definitely stamped E R. I also took a complete photos of the wood forearm.

Does E R tell what year it is?









I took it out today to try and call in a winter turkey. All I saw were deer and squirrels. Maybe tomorrow I’ll harvest something with it.

The Suhl mechanic's initials >>E.R.<< just adds another layer of complexity as right off, I know not who that might have been bu I will look. More than likely >>E.R.<< hung out his gunmaking shingle close to the time of Georg Lindner?

Some possibilities are(if any were active):

Emil Recknagel

Emil or Ernst Reinhardt

Ernst Russ of Zella - Mehlis

Ernst Ruck(if he was actually active)

I looked for contemporaries for Georg Lindner & found the following in a 1846 Suhl listing, but no >>ER<< mechanics were listed:

Andreas Reinhardt

Nicolaus Reiß

Johann Heinrich Rittelbach

Georg Christ. Röll

Stephan Gabriel Rosch

Christian Rosenthal

Gottlieb Hermann Rud(?)

As a sidenote, there was an August Rempt, listed as a Klempnermeister but I am not sure if he made tubes are not?
