This musket is of the type attributed to those made for the Maryland Committee of Safety. The musket closely follows the design of a British Pattern 1769 Short Land musket, which is what the regulations called for when ordering these muskets. The tapered round barrel is stamped "SS" on the left side of the breech and has an "M" stamped on top near the breech. The convex lockplate is unmarked and has the signature long and pointed frizzen spring finial. Brass Short Land Pattern style furniture. Wrist escutcheon with signature screw head in center, long associated with Maryland Committee of Safety muskets. The plain walnut stock has relief panels terminating in a point around the lock, sideplate and barrel tang. The right side of the British style buttstock is carved with the initials "IM". There is an "M" stamped behind the trigger guard tang, as well. Complete with what appears to be its original iron ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel retains a light brown patina with some corrosion at breech, markings good. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration and has a strong, well-functioning mechanism. Lock retains a light brown patina that matches the barrel. Brass retains a pleasing mustard patina. Stock retains a light with some scattered marks from use and carved initials and marks. The last 12" of forend and 16" of barrel have been professionally restored. DMG
