This is a very interesting item. Retains a pleasing patina overall, looks to have been hanging over a fireplace for many many years. No markings that we can find. Looks to have been originally a flint lock and then converted to percussion. Nice curvature to the lock plate. Most likely originally from the 1790's period and then repurposed at a slightly later date. Octgaon barrel is about 75 caliber. Barrel is 29 inches long, appears to have been longer a very very very long time ago. Wood is dirty with a piece missing from the left side (pictured). No cracks int he wrist. Iron mounted. The triggerguard is bent, and the trigger pushed slightly over to the right, however, the action is still in good working order. No ram rod. Musket style sideplate. Lots of pictures.
