Musket featyres a round 40" steel barrel of .57 caliber smoothbore, breech marked with prop house "A 52" as well as "V/P" over an eagle's head proof, tang dated 1852. The flat lockplate is stamped with large eagle over "US" in center as well as "A 52" and tail is stamped "SPRING/FIELD/1852." Standard steel Model 1842 furniture. Full length stock was carved for movie prop use with Indian designs. Musket is similar to those in several John Wayne films and "Drums Along The Mohawk." According to Joseph Musso, this musket was purchased by Fox Studios in the 1920's as part of a large group of guns with carved stocks. Many of the Fox Studios prop guns were sold in 1988, including this example. With some diligent research, the movie that this gun was used in could probably be identified.
