Boy’s Brown Bess Musket, Possibly Military School or a Gift for a Wealthy Child. RARE & Fine
Martin Brander and Thomas Potts; Recorded at 70 Minories and Goodman’s Yard, 1802 and 1827

Boy’s Brown Bess musket, quite rare, probably for a military school, but possibly a private gift for a wealthy child. Signed on the lock BRANDER AND POTTS. These were very famous makers of British Military Brown Bess muskets of high quality. This is the only example we and a very experienced collector of boy’s muskets have observed, and it is in wonderful condition with most of the browning on the barrel. This deserves to be in a collection of period Brown Bess muskets. It will be the stand-out piece. All brass furniture, two screw lock, cock displays border engraving; original ramrod. One sling swivel is broken.

Measurement: overall: 38" barrel: .62-caliber, 25", fine bore
