US Model 1812 Flintlock Musket, Type II, Springfield, Dated 1815
Ex Jonathan Peck Collection - SOLD

US Model 1812 Flintlock Musket, Type II, Springfield, Dated 1815 Ex Jonathan Peck Collection, right facing

The lock with script “US” over spread wing eagle over a horizontally curved “SPRINGFIELD” below the pan dated 1815 at the tail, the barrel stamped “US” with the “V” , eagle head and “ P” proofs; buttplate dated 1816. Barrel bands secured with small rectangular studs [these Wickham stud retainers are the only difference between the Type I and Type II]. The condition is complete and original throughout, slight shallow pitting in touch-hole area only, excellent markings, all steel parts display a moderate to dark aged brown overall patina. The stock is fine, nice edges… great color and patina. As is typically the case, a few handling dings. Period incise carved initials “IH” and faint inspector’ s mark opposite the lock, clear “SR” and a script “P” (?) stamped below the trigger guard. Literature: published within, Springfield Armory Shoulder Weapons 1795 – 1968, by Robert W.D. Ball, page 27.
