UNDATED pre-1799 SPRINGFIELD musket. The ONLY real one?
PRICE: Price on request
Extremely rare survivor of our nation's first attempt to produce arms at a Federal armory, and possibly the ONLY real pre-1799 SPRINGFIELD known, as few muskets were made, largely defective, and believed scrapped. Branded "MARYLAND." So rare, the latest authority states that NO convincing examples are known. Gun is 100% original except for modern replacement top jaw and screw.It has seen very little use, as evidenced by minimal wear on the face of the frizzen and the retention of milling marks in the pan. An exceptional find for the discerning collector.
