Default original finish?

Can anyone tell me what kind of finish the metal had on an 1863 cival war Enfield as it came from the factory?

Hi
Lock plate case hardened, barrel, bands and sights blued, rammer bright.
Didn't stay that way long in service though...

The LORD bless and keep you.The LORD make his face to shine apon you and be gracious to you.The LORD look apon you with favor and bring you peace
