Original Civil War Harpers Ferry M1816 Smoothbore .69 cal Musket with a beautiful displaying patina. The Lock is marked Harpers Ferry with the 1832 date and has the "Eagle"/"US" stamp.

The stock is in great shape with usual bumps and bruises from service and has been lightly sanded at some point. Has two really nice inspectors cartouche on the back side of the stock. Buttplate fits the gun perfect and is marked "US". Comes with an original M1842 style ramrod. From the recent Poulin Auction in Fairfield, MA. Every Collection needs a Harpers Ferry and this is a nice example. Please see all photos.
