Figured maple full-length stock, carved with relief scrolls around barrel tang, clearly the work of Frederick Sell. Relief panels around lock and lock retaining screws; replaced wooden ramrod.
CONDITION: Excellent, barrel retains a dark grey patina. Lock very good, in original flint, matching dark grey patina.
