Please click the image for a larger version
P1853 British Enfield musket, marked 1862 TOWER on lock. British 25 proofs on barrel breech. Metal parts were cleaned at some point and show light overall pitting. Ramrod, middle barrel band, and sling swivels are absent. Stock shows some wear and use overall with an added finish, some minor age checks, small chip in the lower lock mortise, and some evidence of dry rot and small insect holes near the buttplate, probably from being stored in a barn for many years. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
