"Golden Age" Flintlock Kentucky Rifle

Circa 1780-1800, 59 inches overall with a 44 inch octagon barrel, 52 Cal with very deep rifle bore. Faint remnants of the original maker's markings on barrel consist of 5 large bold script letters. Tiger maple stock. Lovely large relief carving filling much f the left side of the buttstock with a few relief panels around forward sections of lock. Typical Kentucky style brass furniture with handsome large fancy edged brass patch box with a unique and significant engraving filling most of the patch box door of a large panel of 13 full length arrows in a neatly spread "fanned" pattern.
