Approximately 10,200 Model 1795 muskets were manufactured by Harpers Ferry in the year 1812.

The serial number and two sunken oval proofs appear on the left side of the barrel at the breech. The top of the barrel is marked "P" and "II/V." Bayonet lug on top of the barrel (socket bayonet that does not correctly fit the musket included), brass blade front sight on the rear strap of the front barrel band, leather sling and "GDM" (George D. Moller) collection initials marked at the toe of the stock. The buttstock is hand carved "G*R*B" on the left side and "Marlin Fry" on the right side. The stock flat is stamped with "V/JS" and "V/MH," common U.S. inspection marks for the year 1812. Provenance: The George Moller Collection

Rating Definition:

Good. The metal surfaces have a mottled bright appearance with typical flash type pitting. The stock is very good with minimal chipping and minor-moderate dings and scratches. Bayonet is fair with cracked socket. Mechanically excellent.
