Attractive American stocked percussion longfowler. 45-1/2" round barrel of about 0.67" bore. Marked on lock "MOORE" and stamped "1700" on barrel tang. Brass furniture is nicely engraved, but not as fancy as typical of English manufacture. Metal parts have a light to medium patina overall with some pitting in the barrel breech area. Full stock, likely of maple, has added varnished finish, a couple stable diagonal cracks opposite the lock, shows a small crack in front of the lock, and some minor chipping around the barrel tang. Hammer functions at full cock, but does not hand half cock. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
