The 40.75 inch .69-caliber barrel is in dark finish; top of breech displays an Amsterdam
control mark; original lock with matching gooseneck hammer and frizzen; marked in two
lines near center “THORNE/AMSTERDAM”. Smooth normal wear to metal; the lightweight
and gracefully proportioned walnut stock with barrel tang carving is sound and has good color
and patina; there are a couple very shallow short losses to wood at the top of barrel
channel, left side. All military style brass furniture; the elongated upper barrel band
is especially long, 8 3/8” in length, and double-strapped…held by barrel spring; lacks
swing swivel. Brass English style trigger guard featuring hazelnut front terminal,
baluster breech, typically thin Dutch style buttplate, S-type sideplate and oval escutcheon
(thumbpiece); all in old surface with verdigris. Retains original steel trumpet head
ramrod. We sold the Harold Peterson Estate fusil (lot number eight) which is identical
except for three-barrel bands (ours has two). It appears that this gun only ever had two
bands; overall and barrel lengths are the same. See, The History of Weapons of the
American Revolution by George Neumann, page 177.
