I'm new to this forum so hope I'm OK asking this question in the right way.
The musket is a 58 caliber.
It has markings and stamps, but no names or dates.
Pictures of the rifle and various stamps are in my album called "Musket Pictures"
If anyone would venture to hazard a guess as to its value I would appreciate that as well.
It hung in a house with heavy smokers for over 40 years, so has a layer of smoke residue.
I haven't made any attempt to clean it for fear of ruining the patina.
Guidance on what to do about that and if anything, how to would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone may be able to give.
It's been in the family for a long time, rumors date it back to a converted flint-loc, to cap.. 1776?? I doubt that but would like some info, I have had it apart, just some stamped marks, nothing recognizable to me.. the barrel was a silver color..
