Here is a British Sargents Musket based upon the Third Model Brown Bess in 69 caliber with a 39" long barrel. The metal barrel, "T. Ketland & Co."marked lockplate and sling swivels exhibit a cleaned gun metal grayish brown patina with some scattered specks of pitting most noticeable near the drum and nipple conversion. The brass furniture appears to be untouched and exhibits a rich ocre tarnish. The near full length stock rates very good with strong edges and a couple small chips in the forestock section. The middle thimble is missing along with the ramrod and nipple. Mechanically, this musket functions well. An attractive musket that would be perfect over the field stone fireplace of an early American homestead.  {Antique}
