SERIAL NUMBER: NSN DESIGN: This mid-19th century example of a Pennsylvania long rifle has a 38” .45 caliber, full octagonal rifled barrel and is 43” overall. The stock is hard maple. The rifle is signed on the barrel, “J. Schuler & Co. , Liverpool, PA.” Inscribed "Worly" on the barrel. Worly (Worley) family members were barrel makers on the Wyomissing Creek in Berks County. The rifle was made as percussion and has its original lock which works. Set triggers are present and working. The 4-piece brass patchbox has been attractively engraved with a floral motif, consistent with the Shuler shop style. The finial of the box is of the “keyhole” design, a popular Lancaster style that moved up the Susquehanna as the population moved north and west from town. There are two silver inlays, one on the cheek piece and a thumb plate; both are engraved. The trigger guard and other furniture are correct to the piece. The wrist has an old, professional repair. Flaws are as follows and are all correctible: The two center barrel pin escutcheons are missing and years ago someone put some putty in those areas to preserve the wood. Putty was also applied as a stabilizer to the area that regularly burns out in front of the lock and there are cracks in the forestock that have been pasted together. Ramrod missing. MATERIAL/FINISH COMPOSITION: Metal browned. Maple stock. PROVENANCE: This lot was deaccessioned from Carson Long Military Academy which operated in New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania from 1863 to 2017. CONDITION: Good. INVENTORY NO./CATEGORY: 5632/NRR ESTIMATE: $1300-$1600
