C1840 curly maple fullstock Pennsylvania rifle. 40-1/2" octagon barrel of .42 caliber bore. Lock marked "WARRANTED". Lovely curly maple stock with graceful "Roman nose" butt reminiscent of Golden Age rifles. Metal parts have a pleasing medium patina overall with some pitting around the bolster and patchbox cleaned. Nicely shaped silver crescent moon inlay in cheekrest and little silver wrist escutcheon. Stock has pleasing border line carving and a smooth appearance from light added finish, small crack by the lock screw, a couple little grain cracks in the forearm, and a crack in the left side of the forearm near muzzle. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
