M1863 Type I Springfield percussion rifled musket. Dated 1863 on lock. Metal parts have a medium rust patina overall with good lock and bolster markings. Upper sling swivel is an interesting improvised repair. Stock is very good, having a faint cartouche opposite the lock, showing average wear and use overall with scattered handling marks. There is some minor chipping in the ramrod channel and some dings in the forearm edges. Period initials FWB inscribed by trigger guard. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
