Musket; Springfield, Model 1816 US, Flintlock, 1827 Lockplate.

A Springfield Model 1816 Flintlock Musket. No serial number. 69 Cal. 42" round barrel marked "SPRING / FIELD / 1827" vertically at the tail of the lockplate with an eagle over "US" in front of the hammer. The 1827 date is also on the barrel tang. Standard proof and acceptance marks at the left rear of the barrel plus "R / 5 / 25". "EG" in an oval cartouche is on the left side of the stock and "40" is on the tang of the buttplate below the "US". There are also "AB" and "GS" cartouches on the bottom of the stock. The trumpet ramrod is correct, but the ramrod channel is partially plugged, causing it to protrude at the front. The interior of the lockplate is marked "BH" and "N". The "N" also appears on the bridle and tumbler. A "Z" appears on the lockplate bolster, pan, bridle, tumbler, sear, hammer, frizzen and all 8 screws. There is also a "J" on the frizzen. An "S" appears on the sideplate, and "PT" on the trigger plate. The left side of the stock near the buttplate has "40 / S.C." presumably for South Carolina. ...[more information available via subscription]
