Relief Carved Flintlock Kentucky Rifle - John Brooks

A fabulous signed John Brooks rifle that is elegantly relief carved and with the most wonderfully engraved patchbox. It has a 44 inch octagon to round barrel. The last 8 inches of the barrel and forestock at the muzzle have been stretched - professionally done and hardly detectable. I believe that the original nosecap was used. Nicely engraved toe plate, several silver inlays including thumbpiece and cheekpiece (star), reconverted flintlock.

Signed EVAN, Evan Johnson, Jamestown, NC ca 1850

This easily identified halfstock rifle was made in Jamestown and probably by Evan Johnson. It has several brass inlays and a silver cap box. High grade curly maple was used for stocking. There are losses to the fore end repaired long ago with colored wood substitute. Missing one ramrod pipe the other needs soldering to the under rib. The 40 inch .38 cal barrel is signed in block letters. Some work to be done but you'll end up with a nice recognizable and signed North Carolina rifle.
