Earl Lanning for T. J. Cooper

Signed on the barrel "E. Lanning for T. J. Cooper". I understand Mr. Cooper is dead now. Earl told me that he made the rifle probably around 1969. It is a close copy of a Lenoard Reedy rifle. It has a very early Ditchburn flintlock and a 42.25 inch long Bill Large barrel. It is .50 caliber and does not appear to ever have been fired.
