You may want to get a copy of Richard Hosmer's "the 58 and 50 caliber rifles and carbines of the Springfield Armory 1865-1872. It is a very authorative work on all
50-70s and cadet rifles including RRBs. I can find no reference to 1867 Navy carbines, only cadet rifles. The first reference to 50-70 RRB carbines is the experimental model made at Springfield Armory for the 1870 trials. There were only 313 made for the trials. I suppose it could be an actual remington made carbine, but then it would not be a Navy carbine. Without actual pictures and better descriptions of marking, it is impossibe to authenticate the carbine.
