C1840-60 Ohio style percussion full stock smooth rifle. Trade lock has a marking that is hard to read, side plate punch-dot marked "C.W.BOYCE", probably an owners name. Early style 41-3/4" part octagon, part round barrel with plain fixed sights. About 0.54" bore. Iron parts have a rust patina overall and brass parts have a light patina. Stock has original simulated curly maple striping, pins absent from forearm, which is loose to barrel, has a couple minor cracks in the forearm edges, small crack by the lock screw, a forearm edge crack in front of lock, a small piece of wood missing over the rear of the lock, and a couple minor chips around the barrel tang. Hammer functions, but spring tension is a little weak. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
