Original American Revolutionary War British Short Land Pattern Brown Bess Flintlock Musket - 84th Regiment

Regular price $9,995.00

Item Description

Original Item: One Only. This is a great example of the classic 42" barrel "Short Land Pattern" Brown Bess Musket, first produced in 1769, and was the principle Long Arm of Britain's Red Coats during the American Revolutionary War. It has all brass furniture mounted on a walnut stock, including FOUR ram Rod pipes. Iron Flintlock mechanism is marked with "CROWN" over "G.R." on the lock plate and "TOWER" across the lock plate tail. The 42" barrel still bears the original British Proof marks and 84 REGT. is marked on the top of the barrel

There is significant pitting in the pan and around the touch hole, indicating that this musket saw significant use. Otherwise it is in very nice condition for 250 years of age. The bannister rail stock is in good shape, with some chips and dings, and a great looking patina of age. The swan-neck hammer lock is fully functional, and holds half-cock solidly.

The 84TH Regiment was known as:- "ROYAL HIGHLAND EMIGRANTS", and was raised in Canada from Scottish immigrants to defend Quebec and British Canada from possible U.S. Revolutionary Army invasion. They were made up of two battalions, and they served extensively throughout the Atlantic Canada and the America colonies during the Revolutionary war.

The Commanders of the were Lieutenant Colonel Allen Maclean (1st Battalion) and Major General John Small of Strathardle (2nd Battalion). The Regiment served at the Battle of BUNKER HILL and throughout the thirteen Colonies. There is excellent information on WIKIPEDIA if you put in 84th Regiment of Foot. They were disbanded following the end of the Revolutionary war, and some settled in Canada, while others took passage back to Britain.

A very fine musket in very good condition that served in the Revolutionary War, ready to display.
