Nicely reconverted with nicely aged parts. 42-1/4" part octagon, part round barrel with simple double line separator, also marked on flat with a script "DC" proof. Early military style musket lock marked on inside of lock plate "R.BAKER". Long Dutch-Germanic style brass buttplate. American made triggerguard with long French-style projections. Simple trade sideplate, and British military-style ramrod pipes. Metal parts have medium to dark patina overall with some light pitting in the barrel breech area. "Roman nose" buttstock with long wrist flute, classic of early guns.
