Nice type 2 Enfield, indicitive of those British Army service during the period. There weren't too many in the US during the War, those that were would have most likely have been in CS service, IIRC Georgia had a few. Also quite a few Windsor (US made)were in the country from a Crimea War contract that the UK cancelled. Most ended up on the market w/ quite a few States and private militia companies gobbling them up. Depending upon what source you read the Windsor Type 2 Enfields were either the best or worst Enfields made.

Judging from the specimens I've seen you got a VERY good deal in relation to condition.
