H Nock New Patent Screwless Musket Duke of Richmond Model

.75 caliber, 42" barrel, no S/N. Walnut stock with brass mounted furniture, an extremely rare and desirable H. Nock screwless lock flintlock military musket made for the Duke of Richmond. In virtually pristine original condition throughout. This extraordinary screwless lock musket has the classic H. Nock screwless lock.


All small parts are original, and lock has no pitting. The long barrel retains most of its original military lacquer brown, with some thinning throughout. The tang is still bright, the brass furniture are extremely crisp, and walnut full stock is in excellent condition, with most of its original finish and only a few minor storage dents throughout. British Board of Ordinance stamps on stock and barrel. Touch hole shows little evidence of firing. Musket contains its original shaped ramrod and swing swivels, the best example of this very rare and desirable English military musket we have seen.
