C1770-1780 club butt percussion conversion fowler. 44" round barrel with unknown proof near breech. About .65 caliber. Lock marked "REA". Metal parts have an untouched appearance overall with a dark rust patina on the iron parts and a medium patina on the brass furniture. Nice openwork side plate and nicely shaped triggerguard, stock was made without a buttplate. Stock is beautifully shaped and shows average wear and use overall, with an untouched patina, a couple slivers missing near the forearm tip, a couple minor age cracks, and some minor chipping around the lock mortise and barrel tang. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
