Winchester model 1873 EARLY FIRST MODEL SERIAL 575 . Flayderman P. 308, item 5K 036. These early frames have 4 frame screws, no patentmarkings on tang,  and that is correct. Less then 1600 made and not many known.
The serial is on the inside of the tang and very clear.  The barreladress is fine, 100 % visible. The stock has light splits, just needs some good care.  The major stock screw is a replacement. But that is an easy find. Overall dark brown, works fine and it has good rifling.  This is an exceptional  find, these early models never come to them arket.  Built in 1874. The buttplate is of the rifle type and that is also correct, both types could be bought. 

Overall this one is in good shape.
