Hi all. I have an identification issue I hope someone can help me with. I recently acquired a blackpowder flintlock musket. To me it doesn't appear to be authentic due to its low quality appearance. It is however quite interesting and looks old. The barrel is pitted and oxidized and so is the brass on the gun. There are no identifying numbers or words that I can find anywhere on the gun. There are however two identifying marks. One mark is on top of the barrel and the other is on the side by the hammer. The mark appears to be a dog or fox sitting on its haunches with four or five dots in a row under it. The whole symbol is enclosed within a circle. The stock has a buffalo hand carved in it. The barrel is attached to the forestock with tightly wrapped bands of sinue. (spelling??) I suspect it is a kit that someone put together at some point. I appreciate any help.
