Springfield Model 1807 Type 1 Flintlock Pistol

.69 caliber, 11" barrel, marked on the left side of barrel near the breech P in an oval, {eagle} / V. Dated 1818 on the top of the breech, lockplate marked Springfield and dated 1818. Forward of the gooseneck hammer is {eagle} with US; touchhole is round and tapered like it should be. We scoped the inside of the barrel and see no signs of re-conversion. Lockplate with all original parts. Iron mounted, walnut stock.


The barrel has been lightly clean to bright with some scattered staining. Lockplate and hammer have nice patina brown mixing with some light pitting. Band, triggerguard and butt cap has an even cleaned look with some scattered staining. Stock has dark untouched patina. The stock has some nicks and dings. Nice readable cartouche. Overall a very good example of a 1807 Springfield flintlock pistol. Barrel date has been re-stamped.

Estimate: $5,000 - $7,500
