P1853 British Enfield percussion musket. Marked on lock TOWER 1863. Barrel shows Birmingham proofs with "25" gauge mark. Metal parts have a cleaned appearance overall with some spotting on the barrel and some pitting in the barrel breech area. Stock has a lightly sanded appearance with some slivering in the ramrod channel (including one larger sliver), small chip by barrel tang, and area of wood eroded to right of barrel tang from powder burn. Rear band is absent, and front band was relocated further back. Sling swivels and rear sight are absent. Mechanically good except hammer is a little loose at rest, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
