US Model 1795 Springfield Musket With 33" Barrel

.69 caliber, 32.3125" barrel, no S/N. Bright finish, walnut stock with two flat bands retained by springs to their rear. Flat flint lock with pronounced teat at rear marked US / {spread-winged eagle} under the pan and dated 1805 with SPRINGFIELD in a vertical arc on the tail. Buttplate tang dated 1806. Standard P / {eagle head} / V proof marks at breech, as well as US. Counterpane with illegible block letter inspection at tail. Lock in original flint with matching mating mark of a single punch dot on small parts. Top jaw and screw are replaced. Barrel with oversized, heavily eroded touchhole in the correct location.
