    Fine Condition "In the Black" Totally Untouched Confederate Fayetteville .58 Caliber Percussion Rifle, Fayetteville 1864. Appears to never have had so much as a screw turned. All metal generally smooth and dark with just a touch of very minor pitting in the breech area and a 'pinch' on the barrel tang. Deep crisp markings including matching 1864 breech date. Traces of acid brown visible missing with the deep dark patina. Wood really excellent, sharp and crisp with excellent inspector's cartouche and deep dark untouched patina, just a few very minor scattered dents. Brass mounts perfect with nice dark patina. Rifling shallow but bore near perfect, mechanically perfect as well. Complete and original in every respect including ramrod, rear sight and original leather mounted linen sling. A very nice and extremely desirable primary Confederate longarm.
