This a very rare Rev. War musket used by the American forces during the War. It’s a Dutch military musket with the military designation Generaliteit on the top of the barrel and other military markings on the wrist escutcheon and butt tang. This would have been one of the Arms that Ben Franklin, Silas Deane and John Adams went to Europe to precure in the fall of 1776. The Dutch muskets were all military used muskets ( Generaliteit ) marked on their barrels . It’s had a rear sight cut into the barrel tang and the soldiers initials ‘A.T ‘ cut into the bottom of the buttstock both are typical American additions. The lock functions nicely and exhibits a sunken cartouche with a crown over ID /KULEN/BURG .One of these rare muskets is pictured in Geo. Newmann’s ” Battle Weapon’s of the American Revolution ” on pg. 113. A very scarce musket!
