Item No.: 8370 Price : $1,825.00
Item : ELI WHITNEY 1822 U.S. CONTRACT FLINTLOCK MUSKET
Description :
This is an original Whitney Arms Company 1822 U.S. Contract musket of .69 caliber. Basically an improved version of the Model 1816 Flintlock Musket, these were produced from 1822 until 1841, under two separate contracts. This musket, manufactured in 1838, is from the second contract. The musket is in very good condition. It has a mostly smooth brown patina. There is some pitting around the area of the pan and around the lower barrel band. The lock works well. The bore is dark with some pitting. The stock is in very good condition. It has the normal small dings and scratches from 180 years of use. There is a large chip at the front of the lock mortise. There is a larger chunk of wood missing along the left side of the tang and a few small chips at the front of the trigger guard. There is an inspector's cartouche on the left flat of the stock. Unfortunately, the ramrod is missing. This is a good example of a Whitney Contract Musket in its original flintlock configuration. Stock no. 22029
