Round 40 - 1/8" .73 caliber smoothbore steel barrel stamped with deep "X" at breech and marked "P M/US/1814". Flat lockplate in original flintlock configuration stamped "PARRY/WARRANTED" and engraved with scattered sprigs of engraving. Frizzen was relined during period of use. Nicely engraved brass furniture with New England style engraving and sideplate. Convex silver oval wrist escutcheon, typical of New England guns, engraved with a border and inscribed "No. 20". Three brass barrel key escutcheons on each side of forend. Full-length plain walnut stock with brass nose cap and ramrod ferrules, steel ramrod and bayonet lug mounted on top of barrel. CONDITION: Excellent; showing very little use. Lock and barrel retain a light grey patina with some freckling near breech. Lock mechanism is tight and markings are very good. Brass retains an even, unpolished patina. Stock is very good with finish somewhat lighter on buttstock and with a few light scattered marks from use. This is a very nice example of a War of 1812 period New England officer's musket in much nicer than average condition, and showing high-quality craftsmanship. DMG
