Variant M1847 musketoon, possibly Confederate. Built with brass bands, having a sling swivel on the upper band, iron trigger plate with brass bow and sling swivel, brass small-format sideplate. Lock markings shaved off during the period with matching pitting and patina to the rest of the gun. V, P, and eagle proofs are visible on the barrel. Brass buttplate. Iron parts have overall light pitting with pitting more moderate toward the barrel breech. No ramrod. Stock shows moderate wear from use with a small crack by the rear lock screw, old chip behind the rear band, and some slivering in the ramrod channel. This gun came from an upper NY state collection many years ago. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
