    Second Pattern, York Castle, British, .80 Caliber Flintlock Musket, Circa 1780. 42" wedge fastened barrel. All brass furniture with four ramrod pipes, wrist escutcheon and tailed side plate. Gun overall, most notably the furniture, a bit lighter than the standard issue infantry musket, with the side plate being flush with the stock, and the wrist escutcheon a 15/16" x 1¼" oval. Butt plate extension with three steps. The barrel with patent breech is devoid of proofs, and the lock bears the hand engraved mark of Ketland & Co. All furniture about perfect with nice patina, the barrel clean with very light pitting, the lock perfect. Original flintlock configuration. Wood excellent with an old coat of varnish covering deep dark patina, just some scattered dents and a crack with no loss on the forestock 11" behind the nose cap. Relief carved panel at the barrel tang. Deeply marked/ branded on the left side of the butt stock in ½" high letters Y + C / 130. Showing ownership by York Castle with what is doubtless a "rack number." A very attractive British musket in very desirable condition.
