Pictured on page 38, No. 12. as Colonel Ephraim Williams' Musket in Merrill Lindsay's book "The New England Gun - The First Two Hundred Years". This attribution appears to be erroneous since Colonel Williams was killed in 1755 at Lake George and the musket dates to c. 1785. It has a typical Brown Bess profile including a beavertail behind the tang and a swell in the stock. It has four ramrod ferrules, with the second one being the Pratt Improvement-type. This musket is in its original flintlock configuration and has a lock that is marked "GALTON" in front of the cock. The trigger guard has an acorn finial and the buttplate tang is marked "4th Battn Compy". Trigger guard is marked "Coln Williams's Regt L.V.", probably denoting Loyal Volunteers. Overall length is 56". The three screw sideplate engraved with a panalopy of arms. CONDITION: Two fine cracks in trigger guard. Entry finial at the bulge is worn through for approximately 2". Wood missing at top and rear of lockplate. Otherwise in very good condition with usual dings. DRG
