Possibly Indian used, has some interesting geometric patterns in the stock, two "Xs" on the barrel, and a crosshatched pattern on top of the barrel. Hole in forestock and rear of wrist which is very worn and obviously used extensively in the period with a leather thong or cord. Metal parts are cleaned with scattered pitting. Stock is heavily worn, has a small old crack by the rear lock screw. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
