ITEM DESCRIPTION

This US model 1861 58 cal. percussion musket is one of 11,000 made by the firm of S. Norris and W.T. Clement for the government of Massachusetts.  The 1864 dated lock is marked “S.N & W.T.C FOR MASSACHUSETTS”.  The gun appears to be complete and original.  The 40” barrel has a grayish patina, and it may have been buffed at some time in the past.  The other metal parts look like they have not been touched.  The stock finish also looks original.  The sides and top of the stock are stamped with the number 12 about 1 ˝” ahead of the butt plate.  The inspector’s mark on the left side of the stock is faint but still visible.  The stock shows two parallel tight stress cracks about 2” long on both sides that start at the butt plate and go forward.  There are also a couple of cracks on the sides of the wood in the area below the rear sight.  Mechanically, the hammer holds solidly at half and full cock and the nipple has not been hammered or distorted.  In all, a nice original piece for the Civil war weapons collector.  FFL not required.
