The tapered round barrel is unmarked and has a wedding band at the breech and a bayonet stud mounted on top near the muzzle. The convex lockplate is unmarked and appears to be of American manufacture. The inside of the lock is also completely unmarked. The brass furniture is of the British military style and includes a flat Short Land Pattern sideplate, classic British military wrist escutcheon "E*H" in block letters, buttplate with three-stage tang, and British pattern trigger guard and ramrod ferrules. The plain stock appears to be walnut and resembles English form, although less graceful in the formation of the buttstock and comb. There is a relief beaver tail carved around the barrel tang. The iron ramrod appears to be original. CONDITION: Very good and untouched overall. Barrel retains a spotted gray and brown patina. Lock retains an even gray patina with some areas of heavier patina and is in its original flintlock configuration and functions well. Brass furniture retains a pleasing dark patina. There is a crack through the back of the trigger guard tang and a minor area of loss on the foremost ramrod ferrule. Stock is very good, showing scattered marks from use and a couple of minor hairline age cracks. Front sling swivel is a replacement. A very nice completely American made Revolutionary War carbine.
