Continental percussion shotgun with stag carving along bottom line of butt. 32" barrels of about 0.68" with ding at muzzle. Metal parts have an untouched patina overall with some light pitting in the nipple area. Stock is nicely carved with stag, herringbone carving in wrist, and scroll behind cheek rest. Stock shows average wear and use overall with old finish present, has a couple small nicks behind the cheek rest, and an old brass repair to tip of forearm, which shows a crack extending behind it. Ramrod is a replacement. Right lock functions properly, left lock doesn't quite hold at cock, may only need a minor adjustment. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
