M1842 Springfield musket. Dated 1845 on lock and 1847 on barrel. Well-marked lock and barrel proofs. Metal parts are smooth and attractive, may have been lightly cleaned, has some dings on the barrel breech, and buttplate is pitted from where it sat in a moist environment for may years. Butt shows some age cracks by the buttplate from the same treatment, overall stock maintains good edges and honest wear, with a small chip at the rear of the lock and in front of the sideplate. This is a rather good condition M1842 that could have seen Mexican War service. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
