U.S. Model 1840 Flintlock Musket, by Springfield, .69 cal., 42'' barrel, three iron bands, metal parts finished bright, detachable brass flash pan, cartouched walnut stock, with U.S. marked steel buttplate. Lockplate dated 1841, with ''V/P/(eaglehead)'' proof to top of barrel near breech. Condition is fine as cleaned and possibly re-converted to flint from a percussion alteration, as there is a fair amount of dressed pitting near breech plug area. Lock components are excellent and all appear to be genuine Model 1840 components. Stock with mostly visible double cartouches behind backing plate. Good functioning action, bore shows light even patina. Ramrod is present. Est.: $1,800-$2,400. (Antique)
