This is a very nice, untouched, out-of-the-woods Kentucky found in 2004. It has never been cleaned or enhanced in any way with the exception of its conversion from flint to percussion during its period of use. It has a beautifull patina to its finely carved patchbox and sideplate and the tiger-striped stock is near flawless. It has a few wonderfull silver inlays, one being on the cheeckpiece in the form of an exquisite checkerboard. Truly a fine gun, it is maker marked on the barrel.
