Springfield M1816 Type I flintlock musket dated 1824 on lock. 42" round barrel with fine proofs and "US" mark. Metal parts have an attractive medium patina with scattered light pitting. Stock has nice sharp edges, looks to have been lightly cleaned long ago with a light finish added. Has some minor nicks in the ramrod channel, a flat ding in right forearm edge between lower and middle bands, and a shallow grain crack, like a flake, lower and in front of the lock. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
