Description:

Springfield Armory manufactured a total of 4,000 cadet muskets c. 1852-1853 for use by various cadet schools around the country. They feature the same lock as the Model 1847 Musketoon. It has a small bayonet stud on the bottom of the barrel near the muzzle, a blade front sight on the front of the upper barrel band, "1853" dated lock and barrel tang, and a boxed script inspection cartouche stamped on the left stock flat. A period brass plate is affixed to the top of the wrist with number "26" stamped into it. Includes a "US" socket bayonet.

Rating Definition:

Good with some patches of light pitting and otherwise defined markings and edges in the metal overall. Stock is also very good with scattered light to moderated dents and scratches, and a few minor small cracks and chips at the edges. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet is good.
