Harpers Ferry M1842 percussion musket. Dated on lock and barrel, final digit difficult to read, barrel is most readable as 1848. Metal parts have an untouched and uncleaned patina with scattered areas of light to moderate pitting. Barrel muzzle is eroded slightly from rust. Stock is equally untouched, being worn smooth overall with numerous minor handling marks and a few moderate old dings. Has a faint diagonal grain crack in left side of forearm between lower and middle bands, and some minor grain age cracks by the buttplate. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
