|Project signed William Evick, Franklin, Pendleton CO WV ca 1840|
If you have some level of restoration ability here is a nice project. Signed W E in script on the 43 inch original length barrel for William Evick. It was broken above the lock and repaired in period, then broken at its weakest point but could be glued and reinforced with little effort. The surface is original with wonderful patina; the curly maple is excellent. The patchbox is typical of his earlier work and has a nice patina.
|Percussion Longrifle, Heavily Inlaid and Engraved, Western PA|
This rifle is likely western PA with a beautiful curly maple fullstock, 38" barrel, .38 caliber rifled. 20 engraved German silver inlays, including wearplate and thumbpiece. Brass furniture and engraved capbox (lid is slightly loose). Plain comb piece and nicely engraved toe plate. Two small pieces of wood replaced on right side of forestock, couple other small cracks on forestock, long old break with old-time repair through the buttstock. Could be (West) Virginia or Ohio, too. Lock is marked "Duff and Co., Pittsburgh."
|UNDER HAMMER PERCUSSION TARGET RIFLE .38|
|1797 FLINTLOCK SHIPS MUSKET?|
THIS ONE IS HARD TO DEFINE...OVERALL PATTERN REFLECTS THE INFLUENCE OF THE FRENCH CHARLEVILLE AND THE U.S. SPRINGFIELD MODEL 1795 MUSKET. THE 1795 PATTERN LOCK PLATE IS STAMPED "CANTON". FROM THAT, ONE CAN SURMISE THAT THE LOCK WAS MADE BY THOMAS FRENCH OF CANTON, MASS, CIRCA 1800. THE REST OF THE MUSKET IS SCALED DOWN WHICH IS TYPICAL OF THOSE MADE UP FOR USE ON BOARD SHIPS. THE .69 CALIBER SMOOTH BORE BARREL IS 40" LONG. NOTE THIS GUN IS BRASS MOUNTED, WHICH IS ALSO TYPICAL OF MUSKETS MADE FOR USE ON SALT WATER. ALSO, NOTE THE BAYONET LUG IS ONLY 1 1/4" FROM THE MUZZLE, WHICH SUGGESTS THAT THE MUZZLE WAS DAMAGED AND THEN CUT OFF TO MAKE IT SERVICEABLE. MY GUESS IS THAT THIS PIECE WAS MADE UP BY FRENCH AND SOLD COMMERCIALLY FOR USE ON A MERCHANT SHIP IN THE PERIOD FROM AROUND 1800 AND THRU THE WAR OF 1812. THE FACT THAT THE U.S. AND EAGLE STAMPS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE LOCK PLATE SUGGEST THIS ITEM WAS TAKEN BY AN ENEMY AND THEN REWORKED AND REISSUED FOR USE AGAINST US?....ANY INPUT WOULD BE APPRECIATED... $1250, PLUS POSTAGE AND INSURANCE.

|Original Flip knife or friction knife RJT# 3651 - $45.00|
This is an original very early knife called a friction folder. Used for small jobs around camp or out on the trap line it stays open by friction against the handle. That is why the blade extends to rest on the handle top.
Handle is wood and 3 1/4" blade rests in a groove cut to accept it. Overall knife length when open is 8 1/4". Very handy little knife for eating or skinning, great on the trail or around camp. A simple flick of the wrist and the blade is open. Also included is a very primitive frontier era knife made from a file.

|North Carolina 3/4 stock rifle|
This looks North Carolina to me, but it has features that make me think Ohio or (W.) Virginia, also. .38 caliber barrel is almost 40 inches long, Three-quarter stock is double-keyed with beautiful inlays, gorgeous piece of wood, fancy cheekpiece. Good condition except for the varnish on the barrel, lock, inlays, and elsewhere. Rib took a bump near the muzzle, but it is still tight; however, the forward thimble is missing. Original ramrod is a few inches short from an old break.
