Item No.: 8308 Price : SOLD
Item : U.S. MODEL 1816 FLINTLOCK MUSKET BY WICKHAM
Description :
This is an original, U.S. Model 1816 Flintlock Musket manufactured by M.T. Wickham of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Wickham produced 16,600 of these muskets from 1822-1837. This musket has the early lock markings of "M.T. WICKHAM" in an arc over "PHIL.". The musket is in very good condition. I believe it is in its original flintlock configuration, but the top jaw and screw of the cock may be replacements. The metal exhibits an overall heavy speckling of brown patina over pewter. The brown patina is heavier in the protected areas. The lock works well. The bore is dark and there is some pitting, but it is not terrible for a musket of this age. I believe it would clean up significantly. The stock is in good condition with a rich dark reddish brown color. There is some damage to the wood in the area behind the hammer, typical of flintlocks where the flash of the pan chars the wood. The wood has also chipped around the upper back portion of the lock at the edge of the lock mortise. There are inspector's initials on the left flat of the stock. This is a nice example of an 1816 Flintlock Musket. Stock no. 21618
