C1750-70 American stocked flintlock musket. Early "POTZDAMMAGAZ" marked Germanic lock, long 50" barrel of about .75 caliber with bayonet lug at muzzle and slot where a long front sight would have been. Furnishings are likely either American or British, barrel shows no proofs and could be American. Stock is high quality work, most likely American, shows a light refinish, small sliver missing from lock mortise, and final 4" of forearm are replaced with an expertly made period style iron ramrod pipe. Ramrod shows a repair with 3 rivets. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
