This powder horn is featured on pg. 112 of "Maryland Longrifles" by Daniel D. Hartzler. The horn, measuring about 13" across the bow, is crudely engraved “Alexander Hurlbat” along with “1776” and “MYd.” Hartzler interprets “MYd” as “Maryland.” Unfortunately, no strong candidates surface under that last name or variant spellings such as Hurlbut or Hurlburt. The wooden plug is slightly convex. The body is slightly curved and has a conical pouring spout followed by a relief ring. It appears top have engraved snake and floral designs. The horn is complete with copies of the pages where the horn is pictured and an edification record on Hartzler's letterhead. CONDITION: Shows some wear and a pleasing untouched surface. Some minor losses to relief ring below spot. A nice powder horn worthy of additional research, as names were often spelled phonetically. DMG
