This is an impressive example of a massive Dutch rampart/wall gun that likely dates to somewhere between circa 1660-1700. It features a fixed blade front sight, dovetail mounted fixed notch rear sight with a band of engraving, and a full length early club butt stock with an iron peg on the underside of the forend for mounting. "AMS" with two bands of engraving above and below marked on the top flat of the barrel at the breech. The unmarked lock measures 8 1/4 inches long, the barrel measures 62 13/16 inches long, and the overall length of the gun as a whole is 80 1/8 inches. Provenance: The George Moller Collection

Rating Definition:

About good with scattered light to moderate pitting, and crisp markings at the breech. Stock is fair with a fragile split at the left of the wrist, scattered cracks, chips, scratches, and insect holes. Mechanically fine. One absent retaining spike on the trigger guard tang.
