Kentucky rifle with Lancaster County architecture made circa 1820-1830 This example is very similar to rifles made by Henry Lechler. The 44" unmarked .45 caliber smoothbore octagon barrel has a blade front sight and notched rear sight. The lock is stamped "James Golcher" flintlock. The full-legth figured maple stock shows Lancaster form and has brass furniture including a Lancaster style engraved four-piece patchbox with daisy finial and push-button release located in toeplate. Hardwood steel-tipped ramrod. CONDITION: Overall good with lock being the only sign of restoration. Brass has been cleaned a long time ago and has faded to a golden patina. Metal has light crazing turning to a light brown patina. Dark spotted bore with good lock mechanics.
