Attributed to Frederick Sell, the younger. Reconverted to flintlock. .46 caliber, 39.5 in. rifled octagonal barrel. German silver blade front sight with split dovetail rear sight. With unmarked brass lock and engraved brass sideplate. The curly maple stock features incised carved moldings along the length of the barrel, with raised carvings around the fore end ferrule and also around the lock, sideplate and tang. The butt also features raised carvings, along with an engraved brass three-piece patchbox. The cheek piece has an inlaid and engraved silver eight point star. There is also an inlaid silver oval thumbpiece behind the tang relief carvings. The oval appears to have the initials B.C.M., but the engraving is hard to distinguish. Stock with brass furniture, including a crescent buttplate with an engraved floorplate.

Provenance: N. Flayderman and Co., Inc.

Condition: The barrel has a nice untouched dark patina. The stock has an old repaired crack on either side of the center brass ferrule. The carvings on the stock are excellent. The bore and action are good.

EST $ 10000 - 20000
