It is right after they went from the pin fire to the center fire, before they got away from that frame, before they figured out that the frame could not handle the more powerful center fire round.............

I have a lefaucheux also. Curiosly enough mine too is missing the guard and rod. I have heard that a star over a letter is a repro from italy. Can any one help with that ?

Additionally it is a shame that there is no #. 25xxx to 36xxx were imported to US and Confed troops. This according to NRA website. However they were stated as pin fire.
