French contract Enfield musket. Marked on lock TOWER 1862 and French proofed on barrel. These French contracts were known to have seen service in the Civil War on the federal side. Metal parts have been cleaned lightly overall with an attractive gray appearance to the iron and some scattered pitting, primarily in the bolster area and on the hammer. Stock shows fire damage to the forearm with some charring present, otherwise stock shows average wear and use overall with some old handling marks. Ramrod absent. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
