The smoothbore octagon barrel is inscribed "Leicester" on the top flat and private British view and proof marks on the left side of the breech. The front sight is silver and the back sight is iron, mounted just in front of the barrel tang, on the breech. The flat lockplate is inscribed "Dixon" in the center and tail is stepped and engraved. Lock features a roller frizzen and a sliding half cock safety at the tail. Although the barrel and lock are English, the figured tiger and bird's eye maple stock is clearly North American, as well as the unengraved crudely finished iron trigger guard, silver octagonal barrel key escutcheons and the small unengraved silver oval-shaped wrist escutcheon. The ramrod ferrules are iron and the grip is checkered. Complete with a period brass tipped wooden ramrod. CONDITION: Untouched and "as found". Barrel retains a brown patina and markings are very good. Lock retains a dark grey patina and is in its original flintlock configuration; functions fairly well although safety is frozen. Iron mounts and silver mounts retain a dark pewter patina. Stock is very good with its original finish and some minor marks from use. One grain crack towards muzzle on left side of stock. A very nice pistol. DMG
