These enormous United States martial pistols have always captured the attention of American collectors. This Type I has a barrel dated 1818. Eagle head and "VP" proof marks at breech. CONDITION: Minor pitting throughout its length, more pronounced towards breech. The lock has "US Springfield" and eagle and shield dated 1810. Goose neck cock, lock with pitting and some inconsiderable wear. Barrel band has mild pitting throughout. Mildly pitted sideplate. Trigger guard with dark patination and pitting. Steel buttcap with medium pitting and dark patina. Walnut full stock with traces of US inspector's marks and cartouche. Minor marks, no splits. One minor chip near toe of lock plate. Hammer, frizzen spring, and frizzen, as well as pan appear to be components of a very good professional reconversion to flintlock. Nevertheless, this is a rare and desirable martial pistol. Bore is rough. Mainspring is missing. MZ
