This example is of standard configuration, other than a couple period alteration including a silver oval-shaped wrist escutcheon, a silver moon above the cheekpiece, and a brass escutcheon on each side around the barrel key. Barrel is stamped with partially visible "US" cartouche and eagle head over "P" proof. The lock tail is stamped "HARPERS/FERRY/1818" and the center is stamped with an eagle with a "US" shield on its breast. Standard brass 1803 rifle furniture and walnut half stock. Complete with period iron ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel retains a browned surface and wear to edges and markings, rifling is still quite strong. Lock is a good professional reconversion with very good markings and scattered pitting, mechanism is sticky and needs adjustment. Brass retains a mustard patina showing scattered marks from use. Stock has some cracks around lock and sideplate, sideplate is a period replacement. Ramrod is a modern replacement. DMG
