    Very Fine U.S. M1855 .58 Caliber Percussion Rifled Musket, Harpers Ferry, 1858. All metal smooth and clean, just some touches of salt and peppering at the breech and on the bands, sharp and crisp. All markings deep and crisp including matching 1858 breech date. Correct and original in every respect including long range rear sight and swelled ramrod. Mechanically perfect with excellent sharp bore. Wood excellent with very good inspectors' cartouches and nice untouched patina. Just some very minor scattered dents from honest use. An exceptionally nice example of this very desirable U.S. military longarm.
