Subject: US Signal Service Telescope Engraved Barrel Numbering
Great to know that you have telescope marked No. 72. We may one day be able to tell who the glass may have been issued to (could have been several) and who may have purchased it to take home at the end of the conflict.
No. 72, as you have now surmised, is a control number.
We'd love to have any image attachments (hopefully with whatever relative text) you'd care to forward to the Signal Corps Association archive. It will placed in the file marked "Optics, Cases & Attachments - US".
Best Regards and congratulations on your new acquisition,
Signal Corps Association (1860-1865)
