You'd be hard pressed to find a nicer M1855 than this one. This First Model Springfield is all original and all complete.
The stock is in phenomenal shape with no cracks or chips and no burnout whatsoever. The lock panels are wonderfully crisp; indicating that this stock was never sanded or refinished. The original Erskin S. Allin inspector cartouche is still present and very legible.
The lock is in great shape with very crisp, legible markings and a 100% original and fully functional tape primer system. The lock has a great, speckled but smooth patina; another indicator that this musket was never refinished or repolished. The action of the lock is very crisp with a reliable half and full cock.
The barrel is in excellent condition with very crisp proof marks and a matching 1858 tang date to match the lock. The bore is in excellent shape with no rust or pitting and both front and rear sights are intact and unmodified.
The furniture is all original and matching. Both swivels are intact and move freely. The ramrod is full length.
This iconic musket would be a perfect addition to any collection; and it's grade A condition would even make it a fantastic shooter.
