Pomeroy Model 1840 Contract Musket
Dated 1844
Excellent Condition...original flintlock - SOLD


Lemuel Pomeroy of Pittsfield, Massachusetts was the grandson of Revolutionary War General Seth Pomeroy. He began manufacturing military muskets in 1808 and continued until the forge burned to the ground in 1846. Pomeroy had government contracts to produce up to 6000 Model 1840 muskets at a rate of 1000 per year. The lockplate is signed "L. POMEROY" beneath an eagle in the center and "1844 / U.S." vertically behind the cock. It is dated "1844" on the tang. The bright finish barrel is marked "U.S. / JCB / P (in a circle w/ serrated edges)." The furniture is bright finish iron except for the pan and blade sight, which are brass. The weapon is approximately 57 5/8-inches long with a 42-inch barrel and is in outstanding condition.
