Model 1795 Springfield Musket Type II

.69 caliber, 44.875" barrel, no S/N. Bright finish, walnut stock with three flat bands all retained by springs to their rear. Flat flint lock with pronounced teat at rear marked US / {spread-winged eagle} / SPRINGFIELD in an upward arc under the pan and dated 1809 on the tail. Buttplate tang with matching 1809 date and standard P / {eagle head} / V proof marks at breech, and a weak SNY (state of New York) ownership mark on the barrel as well. Counterpane with weak block "V" and script US and illegible block letter inspection. Lock in original flint with matching mating mark "O" on small parts and marked MM in script on the interior. Top jaw and screw are replaced. Barrel with oversized, heavily eroded touchhole in the correct location. Retains sling swivels and button head ramrod that is missing the threads at the end.

Condition:

Good. Metal evenly pitted, cleaned with a dull pewter and bronze patina, the latter likely from old, dried grease. Mechanically functional, heavily oxidized bore with some light pitting. Stock sanded with bumps, dings and mars and chips missing from from both sides of the breech plug tang.
