The 41 - 3/4" tapered round .72 caliber smoothbore iron barrel features a large brass sight on top and an iron bayonet lug on the bottom towards the muzzle. Barrel is inscribed "N123" to the right of the brass sight, and the breech is stamped with an indistinct maker's mark. The flat banana lockplate has beveled edges and an indistinct maker's mark engraved in the center. Classic brass Dutch furniture including the buttplate with an arrow-shaped tang inscribed "COL. SLYPE". The partially figured full-length walnut stock is branded "WC" twice on the right side towards the buttplate. Iron ramrod is a contemporary replacement and musket is fitted with a later black leather sling. Complete with a well-fitting triangular socket bayonet with indistinct markings at the top of the blade. CONDITION: Barrel retains a light brown patina, with some minor corrosion at touchhole. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration and functions properly, also retaining a light brown patina, and showing an American or field alteration on the frizzen spring. Stock shows some splinters and some replaced splinters on the right side, as well as a period repair between the lock and barrel tang. There is a small chip in front of the lockplate and other scattered marks from use. Comb appears to be modified during the period of use. Sling swivel on trigger guard is a modern replacement. There is a spurious "U.S." carved behind the sideplate. Furniture retains a mustard patina and sideplate has a crack. Bayonet has been cleaned and retains a light grey patina. A very interesting pre-Revolutionary War Dutch musket. DMG
