European percussion fowler or musket. 42-1/2" barrel of about .75 caliber. Has a long barrel and rear sight like a Germanic musket, but fancy furniture like a civilian arm. Has an unknown "B" proof on the left side of the barrel. Metal parts have a dark patina overall with some pitting in the barrel breech. Stock is good, showing moderate wear and use overall with a little enlargement to the stock pin holes and a small crack by the lock screw. Has numerous small holes in the butt from where a cheek pad was attached long ago. Triggerguard is cracked by the finger hook. Mechanically good, except does not have half cock, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
