The form of the butt stock and side plate are circa 1800 to 1820
This fowler is 69" in length, and was converted from flintlock during its working period of use. The full walnut stock with three brass rammer ferrules is fastened with 4 pins; two-piece brass sideplate with acorn and oval escutcheons; brass trigger guard is 12" long with an acorn finial. The lock plate is flat with rounded rear and does not appear to be converted from flint. The octagonal-to-round barrel is 52.75" long and has no visible proofs or marks, and retains its bead front sight with no rear sight. The brass butt plate has a 4.5-inch four stage tang. The iron ramrod with swelled tip is 51.75" long. White numerals "2078" can be seen inside the trigger guard; most likely a collector's or museum number. The wood shows some cracking and gluing from the muzzle back about 8" and a small chip of wood is missing at the right side of the heel.
