M1861 US contract musket by E. Robinson, New York. Dated 1864 on lock, good barrel proofs but no barrel date. Has an old brass tag from where it had been in a New Jersey collection since the 1960s. Metal parts have a dark patina overall with overall light pitting with heavier pitting in places. Stock shows light wear and use with good edges, but has some moderate handling marks and some chipping by the lower barrel band and chip at front of lock. Mechanically good except releases from half cock, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
