Description:

This example appears to be an early pattern/transitional North Carolina state contracted Model 1816 musket made before official Armory production of the "Type I" Model 1816 muskets commenced. These early Model 1816s are described on pages 408-416 of George D. Moller's book "American Military Shoulder Arms Volume II". The top of the barrel is marked "N. CAROLINA" and "US". The lock has no maker marking and is dated "1817" at the rear with an "eagle/US" at the center. "GDM" (George D. Moller) collection initials marked at the toe of the stock. Includes socket bayonet (slightly undersized, so will not mount) and leather sling.

Rating Definition:

Very good with some scattered light pitting and sharp markings. Stock is fine with scattered scratches, dents, and a small collection tag hole at the right rear. Mechanically excellent. Bayonet is also fine.
