That's a repaired hammer. Broken off hammer spurs are common in Model 2s. Your repair was done by a master gunsmiths, however. Original replacement hammers are obtainable from a few parts dealers, however I would leave well enough alone, as it adds an interesting feature to the gun's history. A research of the original owner's Civil War service record my bring forth some interesting information. Ed.
