This is an excellent of example of a musket that was widely used by American forces throughout the Revolutionary War. This example is extremely well marked throughout and shows American alterations including shaving on the left side of the comb and repositioned bayonet lug to the right side of the muzzle. The tapered round barrel is stamped with a "D" on the left side of the breech for Charleville Arsenal. The flat lockplate has beveled edges and is inscribed "Charleville" in the center below a stamped crown over "D". Standard Model 1766/68 iron furniture including three spring retained barrel bands. The plain walnut stock is stamped on the left side, towards the buttplate with a large deeply stamped "D". CONDITION: Very good, overall. Barrel retains a heavy brown patina. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration and has excellent clear markings, functions well and is strong. Lock and iron furniture retain a pleasing brown patina. Stock very good with pleasing dark surface, some scattered marks from use and minor splinters along barrel on right side. A very nice, completely original Revolutionary War Charleville musket. DMG
