Default Need help identifying a flintlock removable barrel pistol

I have a flintlock removable barrel pistol with no name on it. Just the number 16540 on it. Can someone please tell me how I could identify the pistol? I can send pics .

Posting pics here would be a good start. See the little paperclip icon on the toolbar when you are posting a reply? Just right of the white smiley face? Also, go over the pistol in a STRONG light with a magnifier. many early guns are unmarked with maker name, but may be stamped with a proof mark that tells country of origin. In your photos, lay out a ruler so we do not have to guess at relative sizes.
