Original Napoleonic Wars Era Prussian Potsdam Marked Flintlock Musket
Original Item: Only One Available. Constructed in the French style and having brass barrel bands, the lock shows crown over Potsdam.
The barrel and the brass butt plate are both marked 1816 being the date of assembling and first issue. Offered in matured used condition with age cracks to the stock but overall still very solid, this presents well and is just like the Prussian muskets used at The Battle of Waterloo only a year earlier in 1815.
Not an easy example to find and having served along side the Brown Bess against the French Charlesville musket, an important hard to find example of a genuine Prussian musket for any collector of the Napoleonic era.
