Yeah, Cane carried it during the Rev War.

All kidding aside, that is a beautiful piece. Somebody on here will be able to ID it. Welcome aboard!

Can't tell for sure from pics- but do a Google image search for Enfield Musket. most of those and the Springfield muskets date from early 1860s.

Can you post ANY markings that are on the weapon?

Realistically you're looking at the 600-700 range. You might put it on one of the online auctions and get a tad more. There's one on gunbroker now with a startup bid of 850 that started on the 1st with two days left and no bids.
