the second also appears to be a springfield though obviously not as well kept. I can't make out the date clearly but it appears to say 1828, if so and I might just be a blathering idiot but it seems the bands were a week point of construction and some soldiers may have used the wire as a make shift repair on the move. there is another thread here of an 1853 enfield musket that also has wire wraps in place of barrel bands.
