This gun was produced by Jacob Dickert of Lancaster, Pennsylvania and is signed in script on the top of the barrel.

Plain full curly maple stock with brass furniture including two piece patchbox with release on the comb of the buttplate. Flat barrel keys with plain brass ramrod pipes. A great example of a scarce rifle. CONDITION: Metal has age patina with brass having an aged golden color.
