Description:

Approximately 9,400 Model 1795 muskets were manufactured by Harpers Ferry in the year 1810. The lock plate is marked "HARPERS/FERRY/1810" vertically at the rear, with the shield bearing "eagle/US" at the center. The serial number "22411" and two sunken oval proofs appear on the upper left quarter at the rear of the barrel. The name "P. Giannini" is neatly inscribed on the side plate; no related information has been found at this time. Bayonet lug on top of the barrel towards the muzzle. The rear strap of the front barrel band has a broken/absent section where the brass blade front sight would have been. Sling swivels on the middle band and ahead of the trigger guard. Includes a US socket bayonet and reproduction leather sling. Provenance: The George Moller Collection

Rating Definition:

Good as lightly cleaned with scattered light pitting, moderate flash pitting at the breech, broken/absent front sight as mentioned above, and crisp lock markings. Stock is very good as sanded and re-oiled with scattered light scratches and dents, a few mild chips ahead of the lock, a crack ahead of the rear lock screw, a chip ahead of the buttplate tang, and some chips at the toe. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet is good with brown patina overall and scattered moderate pitting.
