antique early percussion rifle.This has been in our family ever since i can remember, over 60 years. It's 50'' long, half stock the wood is beautiful tiger striped maple, round barrel. it has nice engraving on the strike plate, very worn you can just see it, It also has the name john walker engraved on it.
There is a ramrod ( came loose from the barrel) and no maker's mark that we could identify.Has really great patina.
This doesn't have the ten cent piece just the name john walker.
