US 1808 Contract Musket - SOLD

US 1808 Contract Musket, right facing

A walnut stocked musket with simple P for barrel proof and eagle over US on lock. Behind trigger guard a "CM" is struck (likely Commonwealth of Massachusetts). The gun was probably taken out of service because of extensive burning at the touch hole. It would have been set aside to be re-bushed, but this was never done. The gun is missing the ramrod but otherwise appears completely original.
