Beautiful curly maple stocked percussion conversion militia musket. Marked on lock "W.A.HOLLAND/BOSTON" and on barrel with "US/JM/P" and date of 1836. 42" round barrel of .69 caliber. Metal parts have a light patina overall with minimal expected pitting in the bolster area. Stock is beautifully figured curly maple, has some little filled chips in the lock mortise, opposite the lock, and around the barrel tang. Forestock has a crack by the upper pin, otherwise stock is smooth from a light refinish and ready for display. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
