Probably New England c. 1780-1800. The pistol features a round tapered unmarked brass barrel. The imported lock is probably English and features scroll engraving in the center and at the tail. The brass mounts include a simplistic unengraved pommel cap, a two-piece oval sideplate with rocker panel engraving on the piece at the rear lock screw, and an engraved trigger guard with a long extension as the front finial. Trigger and trigger plate are also brass. In addition, there is a very long single brass ramrod ferrule, typical of New England pistols of this period. The pistol is stocked in figured tiger maple, with a heavily curved cane grip. Complete with a later ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel is mostly polished, showing a series of nicks on the top with a couple areas of dark heavy green patination. Barrel tang was broken and repaired during the period of use. Lock appears to be in its original flintlock configuration. Cock screw appears to have been replaced during the period. Lock retains a mottled brown patina and functions properly. Brass mounts are polished and show some wear and scattered marks from use. Stock has several cracks along the forend, mostly stemming from the barrel pins. Wrist has been broken and repaired. There are a few splinters of wood replaced around the barrel tang and lock. DMG
