.70 caliber, 46" round barrel with English proofs at the breech on the left side. Early banana-shaped flintlock, 7" long. Beveled hammer with rounded pan. Brass buttplate, brass trigger guard, brass sideplate, brass escutcheon plate behind the tang. Brass ramrod ferrules. Walnut stock.
Barrel has some pitting around the touch hole and spreading onto the barrel the barrel begins to smooth out with a nice dark patina that is untouched. Then the forward section between the middle ferrule and front ferrule has been cleaned lightly. Lock and hammer are grey and pitted. Brass has been cleaned and began to age. The front nosecap is a replacement. Stock has a dry look with a section that has been replaced in the front, between the middle ferrule and the nosecap. Stock has some nicks and dings. Overall this is a very rare pre-Revolutionary War military long arm that seldom is seen and for sale. Great French and Indian War item.
