    Superb Condition US M1816/22 .69 Caliber Smoothbore Musket with Arsenal Bolster Conversion to Percussion, Springfield 1837, with Period ID to "J. M. Ely Jr." Struck with a single die stamp at five points on the stock. Marked on both sides of the forestock between the front and middle bands and three times on the butt stock. All metal smooth and bright, really exceptional. Mechanically perfect, mint bore, crisp markings. Wood excellent with fine inspector's mark at the rear of the trigger guard and nice untouched dark patina. Just a few minor scattered dents/bruises. Retains the original brown leather sling and wooden tompion with a small numbered circular brass tag attached at the trigger guard, obviously from an earlier collection. A pretty gun and worthy of research.
