.69 Caliber, 42" smoothbore barrel with a moderately oxidized bore. The metal surfaces are an overall brown patina with a few areas remaining bright, and scattered areas of oxidation staining throughout. The walnut stock rates very good plus as-cleaned with a few light chips around butt, scattered dings, handling marks and scratches. There does not appear to be an inspector's cartouche on the right side but the underside of the stock is marked "T" and both the upper tang and lockplate are dated 1850. A solid example of one of the last smoothbore muskets. (208009-3) {ANTIQUE} (700/900) SOLD FOR $776.25
