US M1817 original flintlock "Common" rifle by S.North, 1829, matching dates on lock and barrel. Proofed barrel and fine cartouche opposite lock. Metal parts have an attractive medium patina overall with some expected pitting in the barrel breech area. Stock is good with old added finish and a nice patina appearance, has a light crack between the middle and upper band springs, small crack to forearm edge on left side, and a small crack and chip in front of the triggerguard. Nice original ramrod. Interesting marking "CD" deeply applied to corner of butt on left side and twice to the wood inside the patchbox. Hard to fine untouched rifle. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
