.64 caliber, 33.5" round barrel, S/N 6. Blued finish, straight gripped walnut stock with checkered wrist. Serial number 6 under barrel, with "5" internally on frame and sideplate, no barrel markings present. 8-shot turret, offset sights. The presence of both front and rear sights suggests that this may have been an experimental military musket rather than a shotgun, although it does not have sling swivels which would have been important on a military arm. Per Flayderman's, 3rd Model Porter Turret rifles are serial numbered in the approximate range of 680-1250. The single digit serial number suggests this gun was part of a small run of experimental or trials arms. Further research could prove fruitful.
Good. Retains no finish with a mottled, oxidized brown patina with scattered surface oxidation and some roughness. Mechanically functional, although the hammer does not cock when the lever is operated. It is not clear if this is result of an issue with the mechanism or an intentional part of the design. Bore good with moderate oxidation. Wood with scattered bumps and dings and lightly worn checkering.
