This is a close American copy of the British Pattern 1756 Long Land Brown Bess musket. The unmarked tapered barrel has heavy relief turnings at the breech and a bayonet lug mounted on top towards the breech. The convex lock appears to be American made an is unmarked on the inside. The plate is crudely engraved with a roped border and the center is marked "EP" with a series of punched dots. The cast brass furniture is stylistically similar to the British First Model Long Land Pattern, but the details differ slightly. The cherry stock is of British form and shows a period modification to the left side of the comb and a relief beavertail is carved around the barrel tang. The associated iron ramrod is about 1 1/2" short. CONDITION: Barrel has been cleaned bright and retains an old coat of yellowed lacquer. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration and shows a period repair to the pan bridle. Lock has also been cleaned and lacquered long ago. Functions properly. Brass is polished and retains a coat of lacquer. Stock has been cleaned and shows scattered age cracks and about 20 very small pieces replacing worn areas, mostly around barrel pins and ramrod ferrule pins on both sides with a few other scattered repairs elsewhere. An interesting Revolutionary War period American musket. DMG
