M1842 Springfield musket, dated 1853 on lock. Good markings on lock, other markings obscured. Metal parts are a medium to dark patina overall with some scattered pitting, primarily in the barrel breech area. Stock was cleaned, has some wood filler around the buttplate. Wood shows numerous minor short dry age cracks, a slivered area into the ramrod channel behind the rear band, and some minor chipping to the ramrod channel. Incorrect upper band and ramrod, sling swivel removed from middle band. Recent replacement nipple. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
