    Confederate-Used Model 1855 Harper's Ferry Rifle, .58 caliber single-shot muzzleloader, 33" barrel, 49" overall, two bands, brass nose cap, lockplate stamped with "U.S. / HARPERS FERRY" and "1860" behind hammer, left side of walnut stock carved "P H HALL 'A' 15th Va.". Light pitting on barrel, somewhat heavier near breech. Good surfaces on lockplateand overall nice patina to the wood. Harpers Ferry muskets are highly collectible given their inherent historic nature. This one, identified to a known Confederate soldier, is especially desirable. The rifle's owner was from Henrico County and enlisted on April 23, 1861. Hall would rise to become a 2nd lieutenant and did survive the war.
