US Springfield Model 1807 Indian Carbine

.54 caliber, 33.375" pinned barrel, no S/N. Bright finish, brass furniture, smooth walnut stock. Re-converted flint lock marked US / {spread-winged eagle} / SPRINGFIELD in an upward arc and dated 1808 at the tail. Brass buttplate tang date 1809. Barrel with P / {eagle head} / V proof marks and breech marked US. Counterpane with script US mark. Includes a replacement wooden ramrod. Only 1,202 of these rare "carbines" were produced circa 1807-1809. A hard piece to find in any condition for the Springfield collector.


Good. Barrel slightly short of full-length, with a mottled and oxidized brown and gray patina with some surface roughness, light pitting and moderate discoloration. Mechanically functional lock, most markings legible with the Eagle on the lock very weak. Bore evenly oxidized with some pitting. Stock with wear, a clear "US" on the counterpane and with splintering and loss along the forend with an 11" piece missing on the reverse, repaired cracks, added finish and possible some filler along the obverse, as well as a repaired crack at the entry pipe. A couple of the barrel pins relocated and replaced, old pin holes present and oversized.
