Original Civil War Harpers Ferry M1842 .69 cal Smoothbore Musket with 1845 Production Date. The gun has an overall dark nice displaying patina. The walnut stock is in good shape with lots of wear and tear from service. There is a section that has been repaired by the hammer as well as a crack around the middle barrel band. Has a military inspectors cartouche on the back side opposite the lock. The barrel is full length and has the V P Eagle inspector proof as well as a faint date on the tang. All three barrel bands are intact although the middle band swivel is MIA. The lockplate has the US / Eagle and the Harpers Ferry / 1850 date behind the hammer. Has the original correct style ramrod. A solid example that was sure to have seen many Civil War Battles. Will be a great addition to any Civil War Collection. Please see all photos and call or write for more payment options.
