Finely crafted walnut stock with beautifully executed shell carving behind barrel tang. Brass mask butt cap, open brass side plate, fancy unengraved brass wrist escutcheon. What appears to be the original ramrod with bone or ivory tip. Rounded iron lock marked "W. Staples". Gun overall very nice, wood excellent with crisp carving.
