This fusilier dates to early in the the third quarter of the 18th century and, aside from the lock, is entirely of American manufacture. The American made round tapered barrel is unmarked and has a bayonet lug mounted on top towards the muzzle. The flat lockplate has single line engraved borders and an unbridled pan, marked "T./ KETLAND / & Co." in center. The brass furniture includes a British Brown Bess style trigger guard, but of American manufacture. The sideplate is of the form associated with York County, Pennsylvania and has 3 engraved lines towards the tail. There are 4 sheet brass ramrod ferrules, the foremost is trumpeted. Brass noseband and buttplate with 3-stage tang. Plain walnut stock of Brown Bess form and a carved relief beavertail around the barrel tang. CONDITION: Completely untouched, lock and barrel retain a heavy brown patina with some scattered pitting. Brass retains a mellow patina and shows some scattered marks from use. Stock very good with scattered marks from use and some minor chipping around barrel pins. A very nice early American officer's fusil. DMG
