Jacob Dickert was contracted to make these rifles in 1814 and according "American Shoulder Arms Vol II" by George Moller these arms are very scarce with under twenty being made by Dickert. Rifle has correct 38-1/4" octagon barrel with muzzle turned down to accept a taper fit bayonet. Barrel is signed with remnants of Jacob Dickert's signature in script. Sweitzer marked flint lock with name having the backwards "Z" controlled by a single trigger and held by a brass musket style sideplate. Curly maple plain stock with brass furniture including a two piece patchbox with release in top of buttplate, trigger guard and nosecap. Barrel is held in place by flat keyes. Rifle conforms to contract specifications with the exception of a toeplate and barrel is .64 caliber and is a smoothbore. A very rare rifle. CONDITION: Overall good condition with metal parts having finish matching age. Wood has original looking finish with some chips missing out of the tang area and some cracking out along the forestock area. Missing one barrel key. Lock looks correct but could be possible conversion using period parts. DLM 2019
