C1780 American manufactured fusil musket in the British Brown Bess style. 35-3/4" barrel appears to have two worn British proofs at the breech. Lock is French style and seems to show an unreadable marking. Iron parts have a rust patina overall with some pitting and brass furniture has a deep patina as well. Stock is done in a British style with a carving around the barrel tang and a large swell in the stock by the ramrod ferule. Stock has a crack below the lock mortise, a chip in the toe of the butt, and is broken off about 7" from the muzzle. Does not function mechanically. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
