Here is a really cool flintlock musket from a hard to find contractor. The gun is in overall good condition. The iron is smooth to the touch and has very little pitting noted. It retains all three barrel bands with hardware. There is one marking on the breech of a sideways eagle head. The lockplate is marked with a 'heart - eagle / SPRINGFIELD' and another heart behind the hammer. The lock is in its original flintlock configuration and has not been reconverted. The actions works perfectly. It does retain an original ramrod correct for this type / period of weapon.

The stock shows the typical dings and marks noted on a gun of this age, however it really sets this gun off. As you can see it has a crescent moon inlay on unique 'cheek rest' which is really on the left hand side and on top of the wrist is another heart. The tang of the buttplate also has a heart stamped in it. When you flip the gun over, you can see underneath, behind the trigger guard the maker's stamp of - "H. OSBORNE / SPRINGFIELD" along with the assembler's/inspector's initials.

This is a remarkable gun and Flaydermann does give some history on this particular maker / contractor. This is an early flint and would add to any collection.
