    REMINGTON PERCUSSION CONVERSION OF U.S. ARMY MUSKET ca. 1850S 42" smoothbore barrel in .68 calibre. Maynard tape primered lock marked "E. REMINGTON - ILION, N.Y. - 1851 - U.S." Fitted with a sling that is of a later period than the musket. A "DB" is stamped on the forward section of the triggerplate. A "B" is stamped on the rear portion. No other visible markings are present on metal surfaces. Functioning action.

    Condition:This old musket has great character. Carved into the wood stock in large letters is: "GOOD WILL" upside down at left rear of butt, "82" is stamped on right side of stock at butt, "CWF" and a "C" are additionally carved in stock just forward of triggerplate. Metal surfaces go from a very dark, almost black color to brown. Stock chipped near lockplate. Even though the butt plate is heavily pitted as well as lighter pitting on barrel bands and at breach area of barrel, it's still a good looking old musket that was surely used throughout our Civil War.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
