Item Description

New Made Item: Only One Available. Submitted to us over twenty five years ago as a replica display musket this would appear to be a "Jamestown" or "English Civil War style matchlock musket circa 1600-1645.

We had requested this sample to coincide with the 350th Anniversary of the beheading of King Charles I in 1649 which everyone felt brought the British Monarchy to a close. Wrong! In 1660 the people were so fed up with the Government that King Charles II was asked to return to his rightful throne which Queen Elizabeth II still sits on today.

This is the wide butted version of the matchlock musket of the day and was often supported on a "shepherd's crook" type mount when firing. It is extremely well made. The touch hole is not drilled all the way through to the barrel as this example was only a manufacturer's sample awaiting final approval. The project was never taken any further but we still have this single unit. Shows some wear from storage but in overall good condition and ready to display. Offered only as a decorative item, with no intent for any other use.

Approximately 5 feet long.
