This slender long rifle has beautiful Berks County form and wonderful patina. The 40 - 3/4" octagon .50 caliber rifled barrel is more diminutive than most and is deeply rifled. There is a small brass sight towards the muzzle and a small iron sight towards the breech. The small lockplate is marked "CARTER & / TOMLINSON/ WARRANTED". It features a roller frizzen and engraved designs at the tail. The brass furniture includes an attractive Reading 4-piece engraved patchbox and a full flat unengraved sideplate, similar to those more commonly encountered in the Lehigh Valley school. The slender figured maple stock is of classic Berks County form, with a Roman nose buttstock and a relief molding along the ramrod channel. Complete with its original ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel retains a brown patina, with some corrosion around the breech. Lock appears to be in its original flintlock configuration. Brass retains a pleasing mustard patina. Stock retains much of its original dark patina in protected areas and much of its original finish, with some later coats applied. Stock shows scattered marks from use and minor age cracks. There is a small repair at the foremost ramrod ferrule, where a small piece of wood is replaced around the pin on both sides. This rifle has a pleasing profile and patina. DMG
