Here is an item from a relative of mine that it seems some of you may enjoy. It is 48 inches in length and all original. I do not know if it still fires properly.
It says W. Richards on it. I believe it stands for Wesley Richards. There is also a serial number of 57500 stamped into the underside of the barrel. There are no other markings that I can see.
I believe it is from the early 1800's. The gun maker is based out of Birmingham, England, and still manufacturers guns to this day. Was it used in the war of 1812? You tell me. :) I believe it is a rare/scarce item.
Thank you for looking as always my friends. Have a blessed remainder of the day and upcoming weekend! :)
