This is one of the most historic guns I've ever offered for sale. First off it's a Committee of Safety made by Samuel Barrett of Concord, Mass. It was his uncle's farm that the British were marching to in order to seize arms and the gun makers. Secondly, it was carried by Jeremiah Kimball who not only fought at Lexington & Concord â€‹ but also Bunker Hill , Ticonderoga, Saratoga and the Rhode Island campaign. The 41 1/2" barrel is signed Samuel Barrett on it's top flat and the lock has his SB initials. The left side of the butt stock exhibits some really beautiful carving in a ribbon design with his name and some of the battles and campaigns he participated in. As he was a cabinet maker by trade it's safe to assume that he executed this fine carving. The sideplate has Ticonrog (Ticonderoga) 1776 cut into it. The comb is stamped NHM for New Hampshire Militia. Jeremiah Kimball was from Bradford, N.H . This wonderfully historic musket will come with a I 1/2" folder containing all his and Samuel Barretts history.
