Tell me about this Spencer

Please tell me about this gun. My Dad bought it years ago for $1. The only markings on it are "The 22 Spencer - Patent Applied For" If anyone can tell me more I would appreciate it. If anyone can suggest other places to post or ask about this gun please let me know. My Brother just had the gun refinished for my Dad and Dad was thrilled !!! He is really fond of the old gun. The gunsmith thought that perhaps this was a proto type gun as he hasn't seen any others like it.

Thanks.

I have gathered more information and would like to share it with you. The gun is a 22 long rifle. It is very small, perhaps a youth model, measuring 34.5 inches overall with a 20 inch barrel with breach. It weighs in at 52 ounces. A very unique feature that has the local gun experts puzzled is the safety mechanism. It has a rolling block mechanism with a safety. The safety is engaged when the hammer is pulled back beyond the full cock. There is a small safety release button just behind and below the hammer. There is no half cock. I have attached three photos including the mechanism for your review.

Thank you for your time and expertise !!!
