Springfield M1835 percussion conversion musket. Dated 1841 on lock. 42" barrel. Metal parts have dark patina overall with some pitting on the ramrod, buttplate and around the barrel breech. Stock is good, showing average wear and use with a smooth buttstock area and forearm rough from handling. Butt has some age cracks near the buttplate, a diagonal crack by the sideplate and small chip in forearm edge on left side. This musket is a well-used veteran that probably saw early civil war service. Nipple is a recent replacement. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
