The Henry Silver Eagle Lever-Action .22 Rimfire Rifle is based on the engraved scroll and silver-plated Serial Number 9 Henry Rifle presented to U.S. Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles by the New Haven Arms Company. Welles served under President Lincoln, distinguished himself as a political leader nationally and was one of the organizers of the Republican Party. Secretary Welles was also instrumental in the creation of the Navy's Medal of Honor. Using original photos and hand drawings of the Gideon Welles Serial Number 9 as a reference, the master plate used in the creation of the Silver Eagle pattern was hand-cut for production with full coverage on both sides of the receiver. The Silver Eagle pattern, like the Henry Rifle itself, is one piece of American history without rival. The Henry Silver Eagle Lever-Action .22 Rimfire Rifle is built on the award-winning Henry Golden Boy platform. It features a traditional 20-inch octagonal barrel outfitted with buckhorn sights. This gunsmithing masterpiece closely mirrors the original Henry patented in 1860.
