Birmingham Small Arms 2/14/15
As a long time fan of B.S.A. made anything... Rifles, Motorcycles etc. I have always taken notice to anything related to B.S.A..
In the late 1980's while doing American Civil War re-enacting, I visited a dealer in Civil War items in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Where I had the privilege to examine a very fine specimen of a two band Enfield rifle in .577 caliber. Sometimes referred to as a sergeants rifle. It was lock plate marked B.S.A. 1862. So if there is any doubt how early B.S.A. made rifles for domestic or export, I can attest they did as early as 1862. I only wished I had bought that rifle, as I have never seen another that early and so clean.
Still a proud owner of a 1916 B.S.A. SMLE No1 MkIII. with it's original magazine cut-off and B.S.A. stand of arms marked oiler.

Original Lee Enfield's are actually worth a considerable amount of money depending on condition and history. One of my No1 Mk3's is worth @1000 dollars CDN due to the condition and battles it has fought in. VG condition Longbranch rifles are worth a lot more.
