Item Description: Translate description
About .65 cal., 12” widely flaring iron barrel with an oxidized bore. The metal surfaces are a deep gray and speckled brown patina with overall light pitting, some more moderate. There are British proofs at the rear of barrel and a partial maker name on the lockplate, it is no longer legible. The arm has had a long service life and is a drum-and-nipple conversion from flint. There are a simple ramrod thimble and tailpipe of brass with the guard’s front extension a nice pineapple finial with light engraving on the bow and the long tang of the buttplate. The English walnut stock rates about very good and is remarkably sound with much original varnish and a checkered wrist, the forend made without nosecap. The bayonet is 10 1/2” overall with a 9” blade with near full-length face flute and three-quarter-length back flutes, the spring is robust but the catch somewhat light at the muzzle. The lock is crisp and functions well and what is likely the original ramrod with wad-pull end is present. A very nice early iron barreled blunderbuss overall with a great antique look.

Estimate: 2000 - 3000
