    US M1816 .54 Caliber Flintlock Pistol by Simeon North, Middletown, Connecticut. Metal generally smooth and dark with some light pitting in the area of the touch hole. Actually retains traces of the original brown on the straps. Excellent markings on both breech and lock with early "Midln" address. Wood generally excellent with deep LS inspector's cartouche, and nice rich patina. Small burned out area at the pan/breech, and hairlines at the upper lock bolt, and just forward of the lock. There is no ramrod. Nice example and becoming increasingly difficult to obtain in original flintlock.
