In very good general condition. 56 5/8 inch overall length. Very good metal having been cleaned and bearing a smooth age patina throughout. Very good markings. 1838 dated on lockplate and barrel tang. Excellent action. Evidence of past brass tack décor on buttstock. Barrel bands have been period replaced with primitive Arab décorated brass and silver fittings. A very interesting gun that would be worth researching!
