I have a rear sight for it and will probably put it back on the gun

Rear sight will be in the way of shooting with that scarce Lyman tang sight (either a #47 stem or 52A)–no doubt the reason it was removed.

Yes Clarence I kind of figured that, but if I put the original site back on it, I will have a nice Lyman tang site to sell, or for something else, right.

I agree with Clarence… leave the Lyman No. 52A tang sight on it (paired with the No. 17 globe front).  The rifle is way more functional with the sights currently on it.

This rifle is not one of the (267) that I listed, as it is outside the letterable range.  The (267) I discussed are those that can be lettered (below S/N 110000).  Thus far, (3) additional rifles have been found in 32 IDEAL (including your rifle) with serial numbers > 109999, bring the total to (270).

Probably good advice, I’ll just see how it goes.
