Original Item: Only One Available. This is one of the rarest items we've had in a great while. This .75 bore musket made by the renowned gunmaker, "R. WOLLDRIDGE" (as marked on tail of the lockplate) falls into the pre Brown Bess category of a "Colonel's Musket". This musket, dated 1716, bears the Royal monogram of "G.R." over Crown on lock plate and has early proofmarks on the original length 42-inch barrel with all brass furniture.
