A Period Boys (Academy) Infantry Musket with Bayonet, St. Blasien Arsenal
Waldshut District, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, Circa 1800
A fine and clean example after the French Charleville models; regulation full walnut stock with recessed cheek-piece and all furniture in bright finish. All steel furniture is regulation; breech tang, pan screw; lock screw, bayonet and the cock all marked “ 18.”
The lock plate is signed ST. BLASIEN and shows a mark between the brass pan and cock; “ star over “ S” within a shield.” The action is tight and smooth. This .56-caliber smooth-bore barrel measures 26-inches in length and is clean; overall; length: 40.25” , length of bayonet: 14” . A very nice example.
