Springfield M1842 rifled musket. Dated 1854 on lock. Missing rear sight, ramrod, and upper sling swivel. Gun overall has an "attic mint" appearance with uncleaned rust patina on metal parts. Stock shows little wear and use overall with nice grain texture, sharp edges and fine cartouche. Has minor marks from handling and storage, a little chipping in the ramrod channel and a small crack in front of the lock. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
